It looks like this week will be transportation cycling only. That’s okay, that’s why I live in town now.
I woke up feeling horrible on Monday and almost drove to work. I hopped on the single-speed and pedaled my way in anyway. It made me feel better.
I adjusted the brakes on the recumbent, so I rode it into work today. I had to stop for dog food on the way home. I was leery of trying to haul a 40 lb bag, so I grabbed a smaller one. It worked fine. I’ll get the 40lb next time.
I thought about the fact that my commute and errands over the last two days haven’t been many miles. Then I realized that although 15.5 miles over two days may not be much, it’s a lot more exercise than I used to get.
I also didn’t burn any gas to get to work or get dog food.
Yes, I am happier this way.
