Author: October Cycling Challenge– Utah Ramblin’ (Day 12/31)🚴‍♀️🍂

We are nearing the halfway mark…which in this case would be 15.5 days, wouldn’t it?

Today we traveled to… Utah, again. I did about four hours or so of yard work today and needed an easier ride. My quads have been sore lately so I spun to get the lactic acid out (or so say my trainers) and recuperate a bit more. It was thirty minutes with a three minute warm up and a four minute cool down.

I saw plateaus, little bushes, little trees and a lot of rock. The ground reminded me of dry clay that someone scraped against with a giant scraper. The desert is a different place to be sure.

Join us tomorrow for Lucky Day 13. Ker-kaw!

Author: October Cycling Challenge– (Day 11/31) Chamonix🇫🇷

Day 11–beautiful France. C’est magnifique. Rolling through the hills, taking on the forest, waving hi to Belle and the Beast…It felt good to be back on iFit after doing a couple of easier, recuperating days.

My trainer today was from New Zealand. He’s become a favorite trainer of mine. He says things like “please” when asking you to be at a certain cadence. But he also says phrases like “Let’s kill these hills!” and “Right-o!” I appreciate both his spunk and politeness. 😊👍

I cleaned like a fiend today. If I want to write and get the other part of this challenge accomplished (writing one chapter of my novel) I have to have a clean work environment. A clean, peaceful work area is a must for me. How about you? What kind of area is your work space?

Join us for Day 12 tomorrow. Twelve: the Twelve Apostles, the Twelve Days of Christmas, the Twelve Tacos I may eat tonight in reward. 🌮

Au revoir!

Another 30 minutes, at my own speed, watching YouTube. Nothing too exciting today, focusing on recuperating but still moving a bit. Join us tomorrow for Day 11–back to iFit!

What country should we go to next? I was thinking Mars is nice this time of year. Maybe I’ll bring a good book to read…

Author: October Cycling Challenge–Labrador Report (Day 9/31)🐾

This is the Labrador reporting here. My human did her thirty minutes listening to YouTube as a break today. She’s been a tired pup and mumbled some funny things like “If tomorrow wasn’t my Friday, I’d be guilty of premeditated homicide.”

My human is peculiar, but very good. I just scared her by barking at something outside in the dark she can’t see. I like to make her jump like that. 😂

We’re still celebrating the one year anniversary of our first book, Memory Bound. Check it out on Amazon or request your local library order a copy. Here I am modeling with it; don’t I look adorable? If you read the book you can find out my name. There’s a whole section titled “The Labrador.” What can I say, I’m one loved pup.

See you tomorrow folks. Ker-bark!

Brief Humor & Check-Ins

Author: October Cycling & Writing Goals 🚴‍♀️ (Heaven Help Me)

Well, Arcians, I’m stepping out onto the proverbial literary edge here. I have a fitness goal for October: bicycle every day in the month for a minimum of 30 minutes.  That’s right, 31 days x 30 min = around 15.5 hours of my tush on the cush. I’m ready…I think.

Writing goals: write at least one solid chapter of my novel, GOTD. I’ve been really struggling with writing; ever since my laptop went kaput, my motivation and confidence seemed to go along with it. My protagonist has literally been stuck inside his burning house for about four months now and is glaring at me, vehemently, from offstage. I can’t say I blame him. The chapter is like watching a Roomba try to vacuum an octagonal room: we’re going to be here for awhile.

What are your goals for October? Want to join me on the fitness journey? Leave a comment below and we can drag each other over the finish line. I’ll even have Mr. Swinebotttom do an uplifting cheer. It’ll be great fun.

Oh, P.S. This has happened to me, twice (see below image). This tells me I’m  doing this cycling thing really great, or really badly. Yes, that’s a broken pedal. And yes, I didn’t think it was possible either. I pedaled the pedal off, if you will. Straight off. Twice. Lock your doors at night; I’m a mad woman. 🚴‍♀️

Ker-kaw!
