It's Been Way Too Long Baby

It's been awhile since I've had a decent ride. Ever since I re-did my permit several weeks ago, I have ridden around town, to and from work, just little jaunts, all good, but nothing great!
I did have a couple of opportunities, like when we went to the corn maze a couple of weeks ago, but for some reason I just didn't. I can't really explain why, something just didn't feel right. I wanted to ride, but couldn't bring myself to. What's up with that? Maybe because I had been so sick I still didn't really feel like myself? Maybe because I was feeling pressure to ride, when one of the greatest things about riding is supposed to be releasing my pressure?
All I knew was that it really had been too long. It was time, now I just had to find the time. But isn't it nice how sometimes time just finds you?
Sunday I woke up early after being up way too late the night before. The sun was shining outside, it was a beautiful day, but I couldn't get my butt off the couch. I watched a movie with the kid, well he watched the movie while I drifted in and out of sleep. He had been invited over to a friends house for the afternoon so Dave suggested we get out for a ride. He wanted to ride over to Carmel to have lunch at this place he had been telling me about for awhile.
So Dave took the kid over to his friends house while I got ready. By the time I was ready Dave had pulled Patience out of the garage and Willy D. and Carol were waiting outside.
It felt good getting on the bike and knowing that I was going somewhere fun, not just to work.
I was a little bit anxious because the road we were going to take is a bit curvy with some pretty good drop offs to the right side. I actually had never ridden that road on my own, just on the back with Dave. When we first started out on the road I thought to myself, "Well this isn't as bad as I remember." But then we really got into it, and I found myself talking out loud again. Telling myself to keep my head up, look where I wanted to go, pay attention to the signs, all that good stuff.
After awhile I relaxed and realized I had been on curvier roads than this and done just fine. Then I was able to really enjoy being out. I was happy, it had been too long. Why did I do that to myself?
We had a great lunch at the Running Iron, it was just as good as Dave said it was. The only bad part about lunch was a lady sitting behind me downing glass after glass of wine and crying, seriously, crying about how horrible her life was and how nobody understood how good she was at taking care of her family. And how she was such an amazing person. Dave was trying to distract me, but for some reason I just wanted to turn around and punch her in the face. I don't know why it bothered me so bad, it just did.
After lunch I called to check on the kid, his friends dad, who also rides, said he was fine and just go ride and have a good time, pick him up whenever. Cool!
So we were off again, just riding around in the sun enjoying the day. I need to do this more. There is no guarantee how long I have to enjoy this, I need to enjoy it while I can. That's advice I always give to everyone else, but somehow I don't apply it to my own life.
I'm working on making my life better right now, I'm going to stop procrastinating. I'm going to get stuff done. Wow, isn't it amazing what a ride can do!

I don't get out as much as I'd like to sometimes, but I do get out a lot if at least for short rides. But when I get out for a whole day of riding with nothing on the agenda but let the breeze take away all my stresses, I think to myself, "Man this is what it's all about! This is why I ride."

Both rides were great. ;)

I procrastinate in just about everything BUT riding! I could have two million things to do, but I can ride instead? Guess what my answer is!

Glad you got your permit back and are taking it to the road once again. Ride on sista!!

riding clears the head and the soul (well, for some of us anyway), but you do have to just go... ;) im SOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad you got out. sounds like a great day!!

ps, btw, that icky negative woman, i wonder what she woulda done if someone took her wine...grrr!!!...

Ann said...

Glad you cleared your head and got your shit together. :)

It IS amazing what a ride can do. So amazing that because I'm very much aware of the fact my chances to will soon come to an end for the season, I'm kinda bummed out. I won't go so far as to pound wine and whine, but it does suck. I HATE this time of year now, when I always used to love the fall. Now, spring is definitely my season.

I like to think of my procrastination as being selective, meaning I'll blow it off if I know I can get away with it. But, I also realize the need for certain shit to get done. I NEVER procrastinate where riding is concerned. If I have a chance, I'm spinning those wheels baby....

Webster- I've been trying to stop procrastinating for awhile, but I keep putting it off! LOL

Mr. M- Exactly! It's so amazing what a good ride can do!

Dave- Yes, they were!

Lady R- I hate being a procrastinater, but it really is hard for me to make myself do stuff sometimes, even when it's something I want to do, weird?

MQ- Ha ha, she probably would have killed for that wine!

Ann- I'm so happy that you're riding. It really is amazing, riding that is, not that you're riding, you got it right?

Mrs. RC- LOL, see comment above to Webster.

Joker- I'm sorry that your riding season will soon be over, but at least you'll have Susan to help you through it!

It very easy to slip into a malaise after being sick. Or when all you seem to do for weeks at a time is go to work, come home and take care of the needs of the family.

It's very easy to lose yourself in the care and daily needs of those you love around you. But your mind realizes what you've done, it just don't know how to tell you your doing it...so you find yourself sleeping more...and wanting less, the things that wake you up...breathing life and light into your world.

Guilt sucks, take care of yourself as well as you do your family, and they will benefit from it as much as you do!

I'm glad you got out and did the ride, don't forget to do it again next week!

chessie- I don't think anyone could've said it better! Thanks!

It's been to cold to ride around here, and now it's too wet. I look forward to spring and riding season again.
