Normally, I work Monday to Friday. Meaning, I bike to work Monday to Friday, and destroy the environment on the weekends only using my Honda CRV which my girlfriend drives 99% of the time. This week, things are a little different. I had Thursday and Friday off, and work today and tomorrow. This begs the question, “do I have to ride my bike to work on the weekend?”
Initially, I would say YES, because they are technically work days, however, I’m going to go easy on myself, because yesterday and Thursday I put at least 3 or 4 times as many miles on my bike riding to the gym, to the mall, to the other mall, and to a downtown errand than I would have simply riding my bike to and from work. I may be in the gray area here, but I’m still giving myself the victories.
Thursday was a very ugly day. I had to wear all the rain gear everywhere I went. On one stop, at Sears in the Hillside mall (I was shopping for a heated mattress pad) you could literally hear my shoes/pants/jacked sloshing and squeaking up and down each and every isle. Because I couldn’t find what I wanted at Sears, I stopped in at The Bay downtown. Another swing-and-a-miss. Add 2 squash matches in there, and yea…my quads are sore.
