Sometimes I’m feeling lazy

by on April 27, 2012

For me to be on track to meet my 700 mile goal for the month, a longer day was required today.  I really wasn’t in the mood for a very long ride alone, and when Mike said he was not riding to work today, it took the desire for a long day right out of me.  You add that to the fact that because of a chaotic week, I’ve not yet written Sunday’s sermon, and I was lucky to squeeze 33 miles out.  That only happened because of the encouragement/cajoling of a couple of friends on the way back home from breakfast.  A ride would have been enjoyable.  Sometimes work and life gets in the way.

Fifty degrees at the start, people out of town, and very windy conditions resulted in a smaller than average group out for the breakfast ride.  By the time we got to Annapolis, there were 6 of us.  Jeff showed up later by car.  We ate outside this morning, a first for this year, and probably fairly routine now through fall.  There was a fair amount of talk about the upcoming Ocean City Ride.  Some of the regulars won’t be riding because they are riding the Super Randonneur Series, with long rides every other weekend.  That puts a lot of demands on weekends away from home.

This was one of those base mile days.  I was on the fixie, and putting in these kind of ordinary days is what makes those longer days and the epic rides possible.

This Ride: 33.2 miles
Month: 642.9 miles
2012: 1576.2 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 15,429.8 miles

  1. Write your sermon while you’re riding your bike! Then again, that might not be a good idea as it would most likely result in discussions of how your faith is just like pulling proper maintenance on a rear derailleur. Personally, I would be fascinated by the subject but I suspect you’d lose a lot of your audience.

      If only it were that easy! It just doesn’t work that way for me. I forget what I think about when riding and don’t want to be too distracted.
