7.3 miles, Vikings and a movie with Matt

I biked 7.3 miles this morning.

Cro's end-of-the-month late night was yesterday so I watched Vikings alone. The History Channel has begun a new series that follows the Vikings series episodes (I think and hope it's going to be an ongoing thing). The new series compares the real history of Vikings to the television series.

Movie with Matt later.

biking and graphic design

I bikes 7 miles early this morning. 503.9 miles total so far.

A former co-worker who has also moved on from the agency we worked for contacted me for a potential project with his new employer. We are getting together Friday for lunch. Cool.

Oh, there was an Adobe Illustrator LIVE stream today and it's going on through Friday I think. It's free and well worth checking into if you design using Adobe software.

Matt and I are going to see the Fantastic Beasts movie Thursday. Also cool.

489.8 miles total (7.2 miles the day before Thanksgiving)

496.8 miles total (7 miles today)

Happy day after Thanksgiving. :) Thanksgiving is always a great holiday for low-carb. Turkey, gravy, lots of veggies. yum

I didn't bike on Thanksgiving but I couldn't sleep last night and so thought putting in a few miles would help. It did. :)

upping the elevation and the "ups" truck

Haha, mom calls this the "ups" truck (she pronounces it like a word)

I increased the elevation on my recumbent bike to make it a little more challenging. The additional resistance actually makes me push harder and go a little faster when it hits a downhill slope. I'm on difficulty setting 5 now rather than 4. And I was able to do 7.4 miles in my 35 minute session this morning. I has been upsetting Loki that I get up in the wee hours of the morning to bike. He hangs around close to the bike and tries to mess with things on shelves to make me stop and pay attention to him. So far my shelf arrangement (everything just out of his reach) is foiling his efforts. He is a wily one though … he'll keep trying. delivered a huge box of cat treats and stuff that Cro had ordered. The delivery guy was nice and didn't block it up against the door (or I would have had to walk around from the back door to pull it away in order to open the front). Loki will be chowing on some new treats tonight.

add more time or increase elevation?

475.2 miles total since August

I biked 7.2 miles in 35 minutes at 6am this morning. It seemed easy and so I think it is time to up the game a little. What do you think would be better? Add a little more time or up the intensity (steeper hills)?

An agency reached out to me to become a source for potential freelance work. Very cool. They found my LinkedIn page.

exercise to combat insomnia

7 miles and I'm on the way to Atlanta.

Biking is becoming my preferred cure for insomnia. 3am and can't sleep? Get up and do 7 miles on the recumbent bike. When I go back to bed I find it EASY to get to sleep.
