It was one of “Those” mornings

by on May 9, 2013

Everyone who exercises regularly has THOSE mornings.  You know the ones I mean.

  • I don’t want to get out of bed.
  • They won’t miss me.
  • One day off the bike won’t hurt.
  • I’ll just hit the snooze button once.
  • I have an early meeting, it will be easier if I sleep instead of ride.
  • I told Dan last night that I was iffy for the ride this morning.

I was all ready to use every one of these this morning.  But routine got the better of me.  I woke a minute or two before the alarm rang.  I lay there in twilight sleep.  The alarm rang. I got up and was mid-way through the preparations before I remembered that I had these excuses all planned.  Oh well … I’m up.  I might as well go out.

And so the ride happened despite my well-laid plans.  We rode in the fog.  We had a brisk pace.  It was cooler than it had been all week.  I did have to cut it a little short because of the early meeting.

It was an enjoyable ride.  Thanks only to routine.

This Ride: 19.3 miles
Month: 59.1 miles
2013: 2004.4 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 21,777.3 miles

  1. It is good to see that I am not the only one who has “Those” mornings. If you can get out in crap weather then it is good enough for me to get out in so-so weather too.
