Did NOT want to get up

This morning was rough getting out of bed.
I have a theory that the mosquitos in Japan have evolved! I swear they are intelligent! They hide all day and just after the humans have fallen asleep, they press their attack! They also know how to avoid the bug zapper and how to stay quiet.
Last night I woke up scratching after only a few minutes of sleep. 2 bites on my face, one on the PALM OF MY HAND, and one on my index finger later, I was fully awake. Grrrrrrrr.

So, needless to say, I was a bit grumpy getting out of bed this morning. But YOU are here, just waiting for your chance to pounce on those iTunes. I had no choice.

Exercise (3/6): Bike ride
Time: about 40 min
Av Heart Rate: 147 for 28:44
I thought I had compensated for the time by going farther today...I wanted to keep my HR up for 30 min...but apparently I am going farther faster! :-)
That's good to know because my legs felt like led this morning.

I need tunes for the ride to help me keep my pace up. I new by the HR monitor that I was slowing down so I started chugga-chugga-choo-choo-ing!!!! It helped me keep my pace...but I am sure I looked ridiculus! (lol)
An iPod would look much cooler!~

Paul just clarified for me why $10 of iTunes is a good prize. But I read your blog just to hear how you're doing. Good gob, sis! When do you go to Tokyo?

IS ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE READING KELLY'S BLOG? As a blogger myself, it's nice to know people are reading. Don't be shy, leave a comment of encouragement!

Thanks, Rach...
I don't get it though...what did Paul have to clarify?

I didn't know you had to pay to get the songs, etc. I had no idea how it worked, just thought it was a program for the computer ... whatever. Now I know.
