For whatever reason, this week has just been a total downer for me. Maybe it’s hockey (grrrr), maybe it’s returning to less than hot weather after Arizona, maybe it’s just that lull that comes after a race and before training gets hard again. All I know is every day has seemed more heavy and bleak than the last and I haven’t quite been able to snap myself out of it. I cut back heavily on Facebook posts because I found myself, more often than not, poised to say something not very nice.
With that in mind, today’s workout was a welcome lift to my mood – a ride outside, not too long but enough to get out to the pretty areas away from town and just tackle hills and wind and the neverending quest to keep up with my husband.
Riding hills "with" Jeff tends to look something like this :) Good thing he let me draft off him on the way home.
And just like that, much improved spirits! Thank goodness for the wonderful endorphins that training brings for helping work out the ickier moments in our lives.
