Means I am going to the gym. This is usually accompanied by capri pants ( that just look like pirate pants because I am short) running shoes and a cotton tank top.
A low pony tail
Means I am going out on my bike. I need my hair out of the way and not making my helmet uncomfortable. I am also wearing bike shorts and a dry weave shirt or tank top and flip flops. Flip flops are so I can still wander around the house getting my equipment ready with out wearing my bike cleats. I put those on in the garage.
My dog can always tell which work out I am doing. She knows for a ride she gets to stay home with my husband for the gym she is headed to her cage.

Today was a high pony tail kind of day. Brad has decided that he wants to start weight training again and asked me to go with him. I love weight training. Instant results and you get to feel all pumped and tough.
After yesterdays less then stellar, ego destroying, sorry excuse for a bike ride....it felt good to cross train a bit. I have read articles about good weigh training for cyclists but I kind of went anti most of it. I ended up avoiding the machines I know I use for cycling and using more of the machines that worked the muscles that I don't use for cycling. We are going to try to go 2-3 days a week. That is on top of my riding 3 days a week and possibly taking in a 2 day a week hula dancing class. Which I need to decide on quick because registration is closing.....
Being the geeks we are we built a spreadsheet to track it and I ran the endomodo app on my phone so it is also logged there. As the weeks go on I hoping to see consistent progress towards becoming stronger.
Going out for another ride tomorrow, heres hoping I remember my water bottle this time!
