I woke today to winds so strong that it sounded like the bush in front of my window was going to crash right through the glass. There was no sun and it was below freezing. I immediately decided to do an hour of YogaGlo and just drive my car to the post office to avoid the unpleasant weather.
However, after breakfast, my body started to warm up. The sun came out. The wind remained, but it sure looked pretty outside with all the leaves blowing and the sun shining.
I closed the YogaGlo window, put on two pairs of pants, a heavy jacket, my helmet and ear muffs and took off. And you know what? It turned out to be one of the best rides I’ve had all season. Challenging, yes – it’s not easy to ride against strong winds. But the day was beautiful and I’m so glad I decided to just do it.
So don’t let the weather get you down. Looking out your window doesn’t always give you the most accurate perception of the weather conditions. Just go out and try it! I find I’m almost always glad I did.
I’m so grateful for my bicycle and hope you all take the chance to ride yours, even around a park for fun! And speaking of gratitude, Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers! I’ll be off for the rest of the week and will be back next week with some more fun posts!
