Winter of my Discontent

Crazy few weeks months. Sick little ones, sick dad, travel, work, not enough time on the bike (or even out exploring the world). Mood is all over, weight is way up. Fitness way down, barely riding when I haven’t been hacking up a lung or snuggling a sick wee one. No snow in Burlington to speak of. Cold and gray and pretty depressing this year, compared to last. Remembering how to breathe and trying to be in the moment.

The chart above is completely fictitious, but could sum up the last 3-4 months.

  1. Mike, been there, done that. We’ve actually had some decent weather in Ohio, but sick dad, sick kid, work, etc has gotten in the way. Fortunately the year is 12 months long! Chin up, it will get better. Maybe fatter before better, but it will get better. 😉

  2. They are Vik. Thanks for the hug.


    Just needed to put the bad energy out there and out of me. Seems to have helped as numerous people have reinforced lots of positive things that are going on in my life.

    It’s not about the bike or the bike time, much as I sometimes think it should be.
