Life in turmoil = neglected bike

The dust gathers on both my bikes.  I am not in love with my mountain bike at the moment.  I haven't yet removed the gripshifters and they are not set right missing three big gears.  I just don't have the energy to sort it out. 

I had a great road ride on Saturday to Greenside - the home of Vida and great cafe mocha.  Chilled, good company and a few laughs on the way.  Since then, nothing, nada.  I am hanging on to the running though and paying attention to my also neglected garden.  Spring is a good time to focus on long overgrown beds and weed ridden lawns.

After the Freedom Challenge, I felt restless and needing change.  I just didn't think it would come all at once and knock me flying. I'm left with huge knots in my stomach and playing my ipod loud when I run!  So I am trying to go with the flow, some of which I can control and the rest....well, it is what it is!

  1. Go with the flow, embrace the change and stop feeling guilty about the mountain bikes, they understand!
    There are times when a nice smooth tar road feels soooo good!

    Enjoy what you're doing now.
