For the last few days I've felt like I've been a fish stuck in a tiny bowl. I look at my window and it's sunny and beautiful looking, yet if I found myself out there it could be deadly. Ok I maybe exaggerating a bit, but with high temperatures struggling to hit 20 it can make it quite uncomfortable.
Today was my breaking point as I decided to check out some trails at the city park that I've never done before. So I put on a layer of Skins under ALL my Hincapie wear and headed out on my Breezer mountain bike. There really isn't that much around here so on my way over to the park, maybe 2 miles away, I did some laps on the grass field between my house and the Kroger. It looked like a few 4 wheel vehicles had down the same as there were paths and torn up dirt.
Once I got the park I did endless laps, loops, zigg zaggs, back and forths, ups and downs, and went every which way. There is a paved walking trail that makes a loop and the fun parts were all between. The other fun part was the trail next to the rail tracks that went for a half mile.
On my way back through the apartment complex I was riding through the grass and passed a few construction workers and a electrician at the green box outside and I felt like and must of looked like a kid out enjoying riding his bike in the snow. It made me think of how lucky I am to say I was working. I wasn't so happy minutes later as I was back on the TruTrainers.
