Was the last half a more brisk pace than the first half? Check, extra credit.

Went out to eat last night after work, too late to think about riding after getting back home and had plenty of steps. Decided to get up and ride this morning, because some of my runner friends get up and run before coming to work. Rode 13.2 miles, took a shower, and went to work. Not sure what hurt more, remembering that I'm not a get up out of bed and go person or having to wait until I got to work to have my bullet proof coffee. I've been hobbling around all day. I don't think I will ride get up and ride before work in the morning.

There is another type of exercise I participate in.
I fired my gardener & do my own brush trimming; there is a lot on my property. I never realized what hard work it is. Not so much the trimming, but the chopping & picking it up & putting it into the green barrel. At 66, I have to go inside & LIE DOWN for an hour afterwards. And I don't want to move much the next day.

I can relate to that - I'm 57 and gardening always seems to tire me out. I'm thinking of building box gardens this spring in the few sunny spots that are left in the back of my property. I will likely thank myself for doing that in future years.

Did some yard work this morning. Raked leaves out from under bushes, pulled out overgrown ground cover, moved some bricks from the border and stacked to use later on. It was a workout, but I paced myself and didn't try to do too much. This project is to be continued. It was good to get back outside and digging in the dirt.

The past three days, I got more exercise than I needed - courtesy of a swarm of bees.

I'm just about to leave & run errands; I'm dressed, showered, got all pretty....I walk outside & see a swarm of bees outside the corner of my roof on the 3rd floor. Luckily, I went back in the house to check inside the living room on that floor. I see hundreds of bees inside, swarming on the living room windows. I'm not an expert but I think they were planning on building a hive. I know people who didn't know there was a beehive in their house until they saw honey dripping down the walls. By then, it's a costly repair. That's why I feel lucky that I saw the swarm outside before I left.

I don't like killing bees, but I figured I couldn't very well tell them to leave, so I got out the Raid & started spraying the window & a few other areas. I thought they might have come in from the chimney. Even though the flue is closed & I don't use the fireplace, there is a small gap, so I sprayed the fireplace too.

Here's where the "exercise" came in. I didn't move any furniture & things before I sprayed, so everything smelled like Raid, which I hate & it gives me a headache. I took another shower & shampoo, put everything I was wearing in the laundry, had to clean everything twice - watch, glasses, Medical I.D. Bracelet, etc. I had to clean everything - windows, window sills, doors, furniture, tables, a big piano, statues & a bunch of other stuff around the living room. Then I shampooed the carpeting & threw out some rugs that still smelled Raidy...
That was a more strenuous workout than 20 minutes on my elliptical.

Wow, what an experience. Even if you had to replace some items, it was still not nearly as costly as professional bee exterminators - although perhaps more toxic using Raid. I'd probably have done the same thing.
