Finally! The sickness has abated! Yesterday was a lazy day for hubby and I, we literally did nothing constructive except eat meals. It was a necessary decompression day filled for the go go go the last few weekends.
So I was determined to do some sort of exercise today in the wee hours. The coolest temp would be at 6am so 5:30 alarm was set.
However the Fios box had other plans. It started beeping at 5am and the “silence alarm” button failed to work. I had to wake up Hubby to do the mainly thing and try to silence it before I took a hammer to the bloody thing.
Awake, I decided I might as well get a head start.
Right before 6am I was pumped and on the Trek heading out to the trails. Par for the course the roads were deserted as traffic doesn’t start moving until Church time around here.
About a mile ride to the Blue Bonnet Trail/ Preston Ridge Trail and smaller connectors. All in all, Plano really has a huge selection of trails and it’s easy to get a 40+ mile ride in without going in circles.
Plano Trails Here you can see the various ones we have.
I was very happy with today’s ride as I was hoping for a nice sunrise adventure. There were numerous bunnies, a coyote, ducks, kestrels (2 family broods) Coopera Hawks and plenty of puppies to say hi to 🙂
I did realize that my bike is very dirty and I can’t remember when, if ever, it’s been maintained since I bought it years ago (riding intermittently). Luckily, I have a 4 day weekend next week so I’ll try to correct that.
That’s all for today! Enjoy your Sunday and stay safe in the heat!
