whenever i get off my ass and go for a long bike ride, i love coming home and finally making my coffee and hopping into the shower. washing off the last 13 miles, getting the salty sweat off of my lips, cooling down in the AC with my hot coffee with quiet time is so nice.
my mouthy bf is sleeping downstairs, my howling cat is napping in the sun downstairs, i have generation x playing softly from the phone… it’s just so lovely.
i just realized while staring out the window that i wasn’t even really thinking about anything with focus, which is kind of nice… but it’s a bit frustrating because i also have a ton of energy from taking two long loops around the ‘hoods, and i don’t know where to put it. art? cleaning? more exercise? i want to do like 937937983 different things and don’t know where to put the energy. i’m sure it doesn’t help that i add caffeine into the mix.
i obviously ride for fitness, but i also ride for these moments (right before the caffeine hits).
