Long Ride Blues

Today I had probably the worst ride in many months. My legs felt sluggish and heavy from the start, I had my first flat tire since last year, and more or less lacked the motivation that normally oozes out of my ears I'm so full of it. The plan was to ride four hours. After wasting twenty minutes changing the tire, then another half hour riding slowly to the bike shop to get topped off with air and buy a new replacement tube, I was way behind on my schedule.

Three hours into the ride, and one hour later in the day than I had planned, I called it quits and went home.

Such is life sometimes.
