Didn't ride since last Thursday. Monday is here. The girls asked to go out to dinner after we run errands after an 8.5 hour work day. I'm exhausted. Sure. But what about riding? Imagine riding right after eating. But it was the only time. It was either go or skip. My knee ached from lack of movement.
The first miles were weighed down. The last, I could have pedaled forever. Looking forward to this evening's ride.
My riding partner, bike wife commented with the end of school we will be able to ride in the mornings. Theoretically this is true, but I wonder if it will happen. Lately, due to scheduling, I've been going out solo in the evenings. Not that I mind, but there is always something demanding of our time.
In the end a short ride is better than no ride. Only time will tell. It's just so interesting when you let the time get away from you.
My baby graduated 8th grade today. I cried. My baby... Her greatest treasure, this rock, named Zeus Decoy. Used as a prop in a seventh grade skit. Left by the door for the past two years and now coming home.
A bad day never ends badly when you get to pat a sweetie for hours on end. Today is day three of pet sitting. Be still my heart. This guy is waiting for us. Knowing he will get held and rubbed. A spunky old man with a big heart and fast little legs for chasing a ball.
