It was a Thursday cycle this week as yet again the rain was pouring down on Wednesday. I got home from what has become an increasingly frustrating week at work and grabbed the Falcon. I wasn't in any sort of mood to plan a route so I just headed out along an eight mile loop I use on winter mornings.
First time around and the wind was beginning to drop. The sun was still high in the sky but the shadows are starting to get longer every evening. The muscles were loosening up and so was my head.
Chasing my shadow and finding metaphors.
I ended up doing 31.5 miles. Four times around the loop. I got into the mindfulness bit and concentrated on the moment. Just pedaling, breathing, feeling the sun.
Work will be fine tomorrow.
