Up of the Pavement and Crawling from the Wreckage

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

2 years ago, things were going swimmingly. I was mountain biking my tush off. I was running like a lunatic. Weight was down under 220 and dropping. Then, at the start of the cx season, things started going sideways. 3 weeks off work with a MRSA infection. 6 weeks off of physical activity to recover from the resultant surgery. My dad went to the hospital, then a nursing home, and then into hospice. I broke my collarbone (actually, I looked at this as a high point).... Like I said, things went sideways .

This spring rolled around and I swore I would get back to it. I even signed up for 4 duathlons and 1 half marathon. None of it happened. Then, I got into an interesting discussion on Facebook. It involve depression and how to deal with depressed friends. That got me thinking. And thinking. And thinking some more. Then, an idea formed. I might be depressed.

More thinking followed that revelation. Another idea popped up. Now, I'm beginning my 3rd week of doing a half commute to work. I drive to the half way mark and park. Pull the bike out of the car and ride the rest of the way. So far, it has been wonderful. I'm curious though. I wonder what will happen when the weather turns nasty and I can't do this everday. Until then, Ixm having fun.

    Good idea to start the half commute. It's a great way to get back into it. Knowing you, you will be riding in the snow anyway. LOL
