    If you mean my physical routine: Too easily. After a two days I start to like my down time until about a week and then I am aching to move.

    If you mean daily routine: I am not a happy camper when the unexpected gets in the way: illness, unexpected company, changes in plans.

    Wishing you well for your upcoming race. I am Amazed by your workout routine! 🙂

      Jane, I’m the same way. I wish I could be more easy going and “fly by the seat of my pants” but I get grumpy when my normal routine is ruined!

    I am so not spontaneous or flexible. I like my routine!!!! Our cars are 10 and 11 years old. I suspect our next one will be a hybrid.

      I’m with you Karen! I like my routine! And I’m not that flexible. I am trying really hard to be better at that though.

    I am actually pretty flexible. I do like my routines, but as long as I get in the exercise – I don’t necessarily care which type it is.

    Have a great ride!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Yes–as long as I can get in the exercise, I’m usually okay with whatever it is.

      Thanks Lori! I’m excited about tomorrow.

    Hi Lisa!

    I have been reading your blog for a few months, and thought I’d finally de-lurk to say hi! I live in Lake Oswego, and we have a love for eating and running in common! 🙂

    Anyway, I wanted to recommend the Honda CR-V as a GREAT car. My husband and I were in a really bad car accident back in 2009, and with our settlement we decided to purchase 2 very safe cars to replace our small cars that were 10 years old. He got his CR-V first, in 2009. In 2010, when it was time to replace my car, I couldn’t find anything I liked as much as the CR-V, so I got one too! It’s kind of weird with both of us having the same car, but oh well – it works for us! I think there is even a hybrid version available now that wasn’t when we were looking.

    Best of luck on your big ride!

      Hello fellow Oregonian! Thanks for the vote for the CRV. It’s a really hard decision because all three cars are excellent and priced about the same.
