Beautiful foggy morning; Back in the gym after 2 weeks off.

Fog blanketing the land across the street from my house.
Beautiful foggy morning.

Beautiful foggy morning.

I woke up a little before 4:00 AM this morning and my mind was going about a million miles per hour. About 4:30 AM I decided to give up on trying to fall back asleep, and I got some work done while I drank an entire pot of coffee. As the sun started to come up I noticed that the lot across the street from my house was layered in fog, and looked absolutely beautiful! Unfortunately my photograph didn’t fully capture how soft and still everything looked.

I used to love to go for quick mountain bike rides back there, but that land is now a posted Gopher Tortoise mitigation area; human traffic (even walking) is not allowed. I’ve seen police patrolling that land on ATVs, and they have started arresting trespassers.

I had a great leg workout yesterday afternoon! After two weeks off from weight training I was certainly well rested and had plenty of energy. Not surprisingly, however, my strength was off a bit from where it was a few weeks ago. I’m sure that I’ll be back to where I was (and then some!) in no time.

I’d love to go mountain biking this morning, but I don’t have time. I’m in the mood to do something (that’s the coffee talking), so I’m going to go get in a 45 minute LISS cardio session on the recumbent bike before I get back to work.

Have a great day!
