Incredible weather this morning; I want a bike.

It’s a beautiful morning: the air is a cool 64 degrees and the sky is clear. Lisa and I have been talking about how much fun it would be to start going for long bike rides, and weather like this is perfect for that. We don’t own bikes, and with the whole job situation still up in the air I can’t really justify any non-essential expenses right now. As I understand it, decent low-end bikes start at around $500 or $600. Maybe I could keep my eyes open for used bikes. I know people are always selling unused exercise equipment for pennies on the dollar. I wonder if the same is true for bikes? Any thoughts?

I don’t train today, and I’m not going to do any cardio, either. I’m feeling pretty beat up from this week’s workouts, and I need to give my body a day of rest. Actually, I think it’s been a long time since I took a week off from training – probably too long. I’ve been having a little lower back pain, some pain in my hip and my forearm and elbow have what feels like tendonitis. I may take a week off sometime over the next month and let some of these minor (but annoying) aches and pains heal up.
