For the first time all month, I'm OK with it being a Monday. I got all my reports in by Friday, and I certainly felt lighter. I almost skipped out of here when I left. I didn't, but I was skipping inside. It feels good.
And I bought my something shiny.
I decided to go with the Forerunner 230 instead of the 235 for one reason. I wasn't looking for a Garmin to track my heart rate, and the 235 has the built-in wrist sensor. The 230 is compatible with a chest strap, which is sold separately. It has almost all of the features of the 235, but for a lower price without the built in HRM. I hadn't seen it on Garmin's website, but when I saw it listed elsewhere during my price comparison, I searched the website and found it. I compared the features and didn't see much difference with the features I wanted. I also got a really good deal from Heart Rate Monitors USA, so I went ahead and ordered it on Friday. Estimated delivery is this Friday.
Saturday ended up being an extra rest day so I could take my grandfather into Golden for the Buffalo Bill day parade. Buffalo Bill Cody is buried, under feet of concrete, on Lookout Mountain in Golden. Every year there's a weekend of Buffalo Bill days, which festivals and a parade. This year marked 100 years since his death, on January 10th, 1917, which I didn't know. I will be honest, I don't know much about him, other than his wild west show.
Downtown Golden reminded me of the Fort Worth Stockyards, but I don't think Golden has a cattle drive still in action.
Sunday was more low key. I biked again at the gym, and I think I'll make Sundays a biking day in my training schedule. Then I did the grocery shopping, and did more Pure Barre to focus on my seat. I ended up doing a full body Pure Barre workout on Saturday, and did more Sunday. I'm doing more Pure Barre since I have the DVDs, and I'm trying to find a good mix between segments and then free weights for strength training.
