I rode to work today. It’s been over two weeks since I rode to work. It was a beautiful 50 degrees with a few clouds. Traffic was tolerable. I made good time, at one hour and ten minutes.
I’ve been lazy, but made up my mind this weekend to overcome it. Today was a great start. It felt good to arrive at work completely awake.
I’ve spent too much time thinking of my 33-mile round trip as long. Thinking of it that way makes it hard to do everyday. I need to remember that I’ve been on several trips longer than that, and that weren’t split in half by a work day. If I can convice myself that the 16.5 mile one-way is “short” then I’ll do it more often. If I can get where I can do it in an hour or less, that’ll make it easier.
