These three things remain: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.
1 Cor 13:13
Yesterday I left work late and rode home in the dark with two panniers. It was about 30° F outside and a light headwind blew, pushing against the side-sails also known as panniers and freezing my (covered) ears and (uncovered) chin. I was thankful that it was dry, anyway.
I meant to do cadence training intervals, but by the time I got to my intervals starting point, I found myself utterly demotivated. I did a few of the first set, but quit when I just couldn’t get my cadence up to speed.
I don’t know if it was the cold, the dark, my tiredness after a long day, or what, but all I wanted was to get home ASAP. Yet when I got home, I had averaged a full 1 mph slower than usual.
It was all very depressing.
I have a lot more thinking to do about biking, commuting, and my goals. I’m not happy with it now, and something’s got to change.
