Weather - warm, 20*c at 5.30am!

Was determined to get out of bed at 5am. Woke up at 5.10am and flew out of bed, rushed around getting dressed, finding sunnies, gulping down a black coffee, getting bike out of shed, searching for my helmet and shoes, go back and get Garmin Girl, now where did I leave my cycling gloves.....Cycling is hard work before even getting on the bike sometimes!

Managed to get up to the meeting point by 5.30am to meet with H to ride the large loop this morning. Because I was still feeling really tired, suggested to H that she lead the way. Heading up Dryandra St I inhaled a bug or two - yuk! Coughing and spluttering and very close to throwing up for the next km, I think it was the steady incline on Ginninderra Dve that finally took my mind off my unexpected and unwanted breakfast!

A good ride but legs were stuffed by the end (actually so was the rest of me).

Lunchtime: retail therapy!

Tonight: Yoga

Rules of Chocolate
#2 Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.

That is something I could never do at 5:00 a.m. - search for gear in my house. I need to have everything lined up ship shape and within easy reach of my sleepy brain - if everything is not present and correct as needed (a) I can't sleep and (b) i'll go back to bed if it becomes too tiresome!
I applaud your ability to think at 5:00 a.m.
Bugs are fat free and a great source of protein!

Re: Chocolate rule #2. Or is that the fat in the chocolate filling up the body, thus stretching out the wrinkles :b. Just kidding! I love choccy too, but not as much as coffee.

Ok, now I know I'm not the only one looking for everything, well anyway at 5 is hard anything.
For a normal person waking up is hard but if it is for sporting, well is almost forviden, you are the inspiration.
