I rode today on my mountain bike and I didn’t enjoy it. It was wet and everywhere was sludgy goo. I had a lot of thoughts running through my mind as to my future(s) and responsibilities. It was my local loop and I decided I didn’t like that loop. There’s not one bit of challenging or technical terrain, it’s just a grind.
I got home and washed the bike. Then I realised that I felt better than I did when I went out. Even though I didn’t think it was doing me any good it did me a lot of good. So I feel better for knowing that.
