I didn’t šŸš“šŸ»

I didn’t bike yesterday. I finished closing the cottage. Washed the floors. Cleaned the bathroom. Emptied the refrigerator. And, finished packing.

I didn’t bike today. This was travel day. I drove to the city. Shopped (I really needed that new pair of winter bibs) šŸ˜ƒ Drove to the airport. And, flew home.

These 2 days were rest days. Sort of. I’m exhausted. I could feel tension mounting as I approached the city. My pulse was faster. I was irritable. I was nervous driving. City drivers are fast, and aggressive. I found the day exhausting, and nerve racking.

I have become a country boy. Accustomed to a slower pace. Disconnected from the hustle and bustle of the city. Tomorrow, that changes.

Each year, the adjustment is more difficult. Each year, it takes longer. One year I won’t make it.

I need a bike ride to make things right.
