Exercise du jour: Cycling to work and back. Yeah, I know that sounds like something I've done before, but each time I cycle I go a bit farther and a bit faster. Hugh would be proud.
Done! Plus, walked 2.5 miles at lunch. Mother Nature is still confused about the difference between February and May, but I'm not about to complain.
