Just last week I posted up how I was feeling better, getting exercise, eating better. Go figure that a couple days after that, I get taken down and out for almost a week with a cold\sinus situation. Blame the weather, blame whatever, I dunno. It’s only added to my growing desire to get back out on my bike and ride.
Typically during the spring\summer\fall I’m logging several hours every weekend. I haven’t really ridden a bike since late November. I realize that I’m not the only one in this predicament, and really it’s not a predicament per se. It’s just annoying. We’ve had one of the mildest winters that I can personally remember, and I have yet to log a single minute on a bike. The more I contemplate that, the increasingly stupid it seems to be. In all this time, the least I coulda done was gone to some empty field somewhere and worked on some basic techniques.
Thankfully the natural outdoor lighting has been staying on just a little longer each day. The weather is steadily improving (for now?), and my bike is ready for action. I’m just absolutely ready to get out and back on a bike. I’m going to be at the equivalent of a rusty box of nails when I get back on the bike. My only hope is that I have happen what I have had in the past. Extended period off the bike has helped focus myself and I somehow return almost better at riding than where I was before I took the time off.
