I had planned to ride my county road 8 loop (26 miles) or the extended version (40 miles) yesterday before work at noon, but per usual (with me) plans changed. I got a lit bit later start than I wanted. With the family home on break it's a bit harder for me to jump out of bed when everyone else is zonked out. Also those routes would have me crossing the Mississippi River into Clearwater. I don't like that bridge in the summer and now that everything is covered in ice I was a bit hesitant to take that route, so I laid in bed thinking of options.
After eating and getting my bottles ready I headed upstairs to change. Harper rolled over and looked up at me as I checked in on her. She asked me to cuddle. You bet! Well she fell back asleep and I was stuck on the inside. I love cuddling so I wasn't freaking out. Those days are numbered.
With a later start I ended up doing a repeat of the previous day. Sometimes hour rides are all you need. Again it felt great to be out.
I brought the fat bike home last night so I plan on taking that out for 2-3 hours today.
I got news back yesterday that my hand isn't broke (according to the most recent x-rays) but that it's most likely tweaked ligaments. I was told sometimes it's better to break bones as they heal faster, great! I have tape to support the hand. Fat Pursuit is on!
