The big picture

Thursday, May 22, 2014

AH this morning I am up before the sun because all night I was so excited about how good I feel. I pushed myself yesterday and did 20 miles on my "inside" bike. I used to ride bike outside but for some reason stopped over the years. I loved the way it made me feel. Sun on my face or back, breeze through my hair. No limitations and an adventure every time. I would ride for miles and miles. Spend my days riding and looking at and feeling the world around me. Appreciating the absolute amazing things most people don't take the time to care about. Like a dirt road...where does this go? Or a hill that pushes you to conquer it. Taking a water break and noticing all the wild flowers and how the breeze blows the long grass. I have so many rides that are amazing memories to me. Peaceful, fulfilling, empowering memories. This is where I feel on top of the world.
When I get on my "inside" bike I take those journeys again while I ride. Even though I may not be physically able to do the exact miles quite yet, I will get there. I will get myself back there by riding longer, even if I have to take breaks. By increasing the resistance and by pedaling harder. Because I was so at peace doing that. I was so fulfilled. I want that gain and am determined to get it.
I see myself maybe a year or so from now being able to ride up a real hill or down a real dirt road. And being able to have those adventures again. Life is so great with a little adventure in it. I will make sure I have adventure in my life. emoticon

    The last time I rode a bike outside I was a teenager in high school! It was so much fun except when we got to a really big hill! My best friend and I would then promptly hop off and push the bikes up hill! Those were some fun times! You will def get back to the point where you're riding your bike outside again to enjoy the feel of the sun on your skin and the breeze of the wind in your hair! emoticon
