Changing my mind

This morning, after I awoke from five and a half glorious hours of slumber I was feeling good except for my (still sore) ankle.  I had convinced my self that I would shorten my ride this morning by cutting off the extra quarter mile at the beginning.  After getting on my bike I realized that it would be silly to cut off the is the most fun!  It is down hill for the most part and it tends to go by quick so I opted to head for the trail and concluded that I would cut off the end quarter mile.  This was probably my most brilliant idea this week!  My advice: if you are going to shorten a part of your work out, do it at the end!  Why? I discovered this morning that I didn't want to give in that easily.  After about half of my ride was over, I realized that I would be a bit disappointed if I shortened my ride and I was feeling a bit more up for it as my ankle doesn't seem to bother me when I am riding.  If I had cut off the extra quarter mile in the beginning it would have simply been telling myself to shorten the end I gave myself the opportunity to keep it!  All in all, I am very happy with my progress and my continuing improved attitude toward fitness.
Be prepared for short posts most of the time as I am officially back at work (with students) today!  I hope you all have a wonderful day!
