Today was one of those days where I needed to be everywhere at the same time. As much as I wanted to cycle to work, I knew that I did not have enough time between meetings to be able to use public transit as my primary mode of transportation.
So, in keeping with my promise to myself I hopped on my indoor training set up and cycled for 30 minutes. I am so used to building up a huge sweat while riding that I had all the windows open in my sun room. Not exactly a wonderful thing for the rest of my family 🙂
