In the morning I swept, vacuumed and mopped all the floors in our house. I cleaned the entire kitchen, washed 3 loads of laundry, and put away all the random crap that Brendan and I left out over the weekend. I know I'm no mother of three, but cleaning is pretty physically taxing.
I worked all morning, up till 1pm when I had lunch and then threw on my kit to go for that recovery ride. And when I was spinning down Silverado Canyon Road at 1:30 pm on a Monday I was pretty overcome with an immense feeling of gratitude. Because last year at this time, one week before the real heavy hitting bike races start and the random bike racing house guests start showing up I was doing all these same things (the house cleaning and chores) BUT I was doing them after begging high schoolers to love math all day. Last year I was on my feet all morning and then after spinning home, on my feet again cleaning. I didn't really think too much about staying off my feet because there was always so much to do back then.

So that was my Monday. Not a bad way to start the week :)
