Work was hectic! I left just a few minutes after 3:00 for my two-hour commute home and was on the phone for the entire time, trying to make things happen for the job I’m on. I pulled into the driveway at 4:55 and hung up after my last call of the day. Twenty minutes later I was pedaling towards Chuck’s house on what should have been an average day for this time of year, but what was the nicest, by a lot, day of the year.
Our ride was nothing of consequence. We didn’t ride very fast. We didn’t tear it up. We didn’t execute any perfect maneuvers or nail a perfect corner. We just rode on down the road, half the time side-by-side talking about bikes, fitness, diets and the day’s events.
It was a perfect recovery ride after a tough hammer on Tuesday. It was so nice to be able to avoid the layers, too. Leg warmers, arm warmers, jersey, bibs, vest and some full-finger gloves. No earmuffs, no tights, no multiple layers, balaclavas, or foot covers necessary…. and it was good.
Yesterday was a legit “Venge Day”, even though I celebrated that days ago. It was perfect.
I showered up after getting home, my wife showed up with pizza, I ate and fell asleep on the couch just after 8 pm. I woke up in bed after seven glorious hours of sleep… I slept like a baby last night, and all is well.
As it should be.
