As summer was expiring in September, I found myself longing for the cooler days of fall. And now that those days are here, I am too busy to find much time for riding or cross-training (normally in the form of trail running for me). I’ve got a pile of books to read, three large research projects to do, some volunteer tutoring, two less-than-part-time jobs, fall yard-work at my house and relatives’ houses, any regular classes to attend, and homework to do. Not to mention special events and finding the time to relax for a bit and put my feet up.
I am not complaining, just explaining that I have reached the same depressing point that most cyclists meet this time of year. The weather is perfect, but I am too busy, or home too late (curse the setting sun) to get a ride in.
So here’s to the prospect of a beautiful weekend that will actually find me with some spare hours to get some good rides in! Anyone want to join me?
