A Quandry…


October 2012

Here’s the definition of the word “quandary”:

  • Perplexity or uncertainty over what to do in a difficult situation:  “Jim is in a quandary“.
  • A difficult situation; a practical dilemma.

Yes, he most certainly is in a quandary.  The situation is not difficult, per se, but I am stuck as to what I should do this morning.  Today will be our last decent riding day for at least a week.  We’ve got partly cloudy skies and a medium heavy wind out of the north at 9-15 mph and a high of 53 on tap for the day.  On top of that, it’s date night and my wife and I are going out with English Pete and his wife to celebrate their anniversary tonight (I know, the Tigers are playing, but he’s one of my best friends on the planet – sometimes you’ve just gotta take one for the team, eh?)…  So the question is, do I go out for a 25-30 mile bike ride, stopping in at the running club for a bit – for the last time in at least a week, or do I drive down and go for a run?  If I run, I’ll most certainly be sore tonight when we go out to dinner.  If I ride, I won’t.  If I run, I’ll likely get home and take a nap.  If I ride, I should have enough left in the tank to cut some grass when I get back.  It is a pickle for sure, but here’s he deciding factor, I think:  If I ride, I’ll have more fun, both during and after the workout.  I think I’ll go for the ride.

    It’s pouring buckets here so I slept in. Now off to the gym. Glad you went for fun, it is the weekend!
