I’ve been sidelined by a saddle sore for a few weeks now. During times like this it’s easy to forget the good; to forget why you do what you do. Even when you are at peak fitness, injury free, you can get mowed down by the competition and feel : “Why do I do this?”.
Today I got back on the bike, with no real enthusiasm and just hit the NICK trail. Two minutes in I was having fun. Everything just flowed – the hills seemed short, the technical sections seemed easy, the bike seemed to just do hat it had to. I nearly laughed out loud because I was having so much fun. So because of this, I’ve added a new category to my posts: “Remember!”.
It’s a tag I can click when I need to remember why I do this. Today is the first of what I hope are many of these posts.
