"When at first things don't succeed, perhaps it's time to seek Plan B"
Bandit didn't do so well with the petsitter while we were on vacation. While it's fresh in my mind, I wanted to investigate alternatives for next time. I must thank Cindy, because she tipped me off to something that led to a potential Plan B (kennelling with day camp option). We tested the waters with Doggy Day Care today, and he did well with that. Yay!! Thank you, Cindy!!
After dropping him off this morning, it was my intention to get in a good swim, 1600-2000 meters depending on how I was feeling. I arrived at the gym that has the pool that I swim at to find no cars in the parking lot, no lights in the building, and the doors locked. Hmmmm. That can't be good. I came home, contacted a friend that also swims there and discovered that they closed the doors for good last Friday. So now I need a Plan B for swimming as well. Grrrr.
Looking at the comments from my lack of cycling last month was interesting. Seems like there are two schools of thought out there. Some of you encouraging me to get back on my bike, and others who think it's okay that I haven't been cycling. My absolute favorite comment came from brendaj who offered the perfect plan B "You could just become a runner! That would justify buying a lot more skirts!!" Ha! Now that's my kind of thinking!! :)
With swimming off the list of options for today, I needed a Plan B for my workout. The weather was delightful, so I decided to change into cycling gear, put air in the tires of my Lemond, and head off for a short 12 mile ride at lunchtime.
As it turns out, sometimes Plan B isn't so bad after all.
