The Pleasures Of Wind

Actually I really hate it. The wind, that is. But I thought if I spoke nicely about it maybe it would be less punishing. I suppose today was not the worst of days wind-wise, but for some reason it really slowed me down, especially on the way home. But it was good to be out after yesterday's total washout; it really was not a day to be out on a bike. Today I leave for NJ in preparation for the bris tomorrow. So that will be all until next week.
After concentrating on getting my morning riding then writing routine down I have noticed that I need more time in the afternoon for re-writing and editing. I hope to check in at the bike shop next week and get on some kind of modest schedule that will allow me to fulfill all my goals, but the writing must take precedence.

I know these days. Actually we've had a wonderful season of cold weather and a lot of snow and ice, a winter like we haven't had it here for years. Now I have to go out for a ride in the Black Forest area in Southern Germany, the snow is melting and it's raining.
How can you motivate yourself in such a situation? I think sometimes it's best to not think at all and just jump on the bike and do it.
Yes we can!
