I got out yesterday for a rare (very rare) Saturday morning ride. I’m usually busy doing our local Farmer’s Market where we sell home-baked breads. It’s another hobby of mine I picked up YEARS ago.
So, I was out riding for the 1st Saturday in AGES. The weather was perfect. A bit chilly, but as the ride went on, the temps started to rise. Knowing that I wouldn’t freeze my ass off put my mind at ease and I just focused on the road ahead of me.
I had my iPhone with me (on my arm-band) and I had some tunes playing, but I turned off the iPhone. The music was distracting and my sole purpose for the ride was to just enjoy the scenery and sounds.
I got in a 17.5 mile ride. The average didn’t matter to me. Speed was not the goal of this ride.
I’m hopeful that today I can repeat the ride. Time is not on my side today.
It was yesterday.
