Mental Wrestling

Today was wet; all day, or most of it. Good for the dogs, who had a ball playing in the park, and great when I went swimming and enjoyed a lane to myself.

My doubts as to the wonderfulness of wetness came with the prospect of riding to coach my squads. For some reason the idea of riding in the rain, standing wet on a pool deck for two hours, then riding home again, tired, wet, and miserable, seemed very unappealing.

However … the program did say a 1 hour ride and, at least for this month, the program rules. It is also that I did sign up for Janathon which means commitment; not only to my goals but  also because a public sign up means supporting others working towards their goals. On top of that I also have an eco-commitment to use the car as little as possible.  Reluctantly I set off in the rain and it wasn’t so bad; in fact it stopped raining and the ride home was very pleasant.

Mental wrestling: 1 for commitment / 0 for excuses .. until next time.

  1. Lane to yourself, such a luxury, isn’t it? Well done for riding in the rain – worst part is getting started!
