    Hasn’t our PNW weather been a blessing? I’ve been biking more as well, though not to work. There are a few hellacious (and not very safe) hills on the way and no clean-up facilities at work, so that’s never going to happen, but it’s been good to get out on weekends and after work. Unfortunately, my favorite flat trail is closed for now, so that means streets and hills every direction – building up some good biking muscles for sure! I’m also with you on missing swimming. I didn’t ever swim as regularly as you due to the lack of an easily accessible pool, but I could usually count on it for one weekend day. And I could really use it now with a nice case of PF flaring up – it’s putting a real damper on my running, so swimming would be really appreciated right now. Glad you’re getting the time to get back on your wheels!

      That’s a bummer. When I biked to work I used baby wipes to clean up the sweat and re-applied deodorant. That was usually sufficient enough for the work day. I wasn’t too sweaty.

      Have you been icing your feet?

      I miss swimming a lot!!! Probably the most.

    Sounds like you need a way to put Logan on bike with you. He is probably too big for traditional baby seat. Have you seen the bike seats where they are on their own wheel and attach to one of the bike frames? I think you could find a used one.

      Yes! I really want to get one of those!
