I finished yoga on Saturday morning with plans to do a few things around my apartment, and I got outside the studio, saw the beautiful day, and knew there was no way I was staying inside.
I texted a friend to see if she wanted to go for a bike ride, and we decided to attempt the trail that could go to Stillwater. We didn’t say we were going to Stillwater, because its an 18 mile out and back trail, for a grand total of 36 miles. Instead we chose to park at the Maplewood Community center and ride as far as it felt good. Since it was our first time on the Gateway trail we went about 7 miles in before deciding that was enough of an adventure of the day. At least by bike.
We then ventured into White Bear Lake to check out Big Wood Brewery, and then to Washington Square Bar and Grill. Both had patios, so other than my sleeping hours and yoga hour, I was outside all day long. It was perfect! Maybe we will make it to Stillwater by bike someday, but its okay that it didn’t happen. We still saw a new part of the metro, and had a great time!
*Of course there were quite a few bike mishaps, but we got it all figured out.
Do you plan your weekends? Or do you wait until the moment of to see what you’re in the mood for?
