There's a very tiny part of me that has felt a tiny slice of relief in the morning while looking at the thermometer. Old habits are tough to shake as I continue to generally prepare my work clothing the night before I go to bed as if I were going to ride in the morning. I still look at the thermometer to see what the day is like outside and go through the mental checklist of what I would wear.

Surprising that those thoughts still go through my head. The last time I rode a bike was on December 3rd, and before that, October 10th. I wish that I felt up to it physically. Since my last ride, I've been concentrating solely on my physical therapy and saving what little energy I do have for simply walking.

Yes, it's cold and we've gotten a bit of snow here in Minnesota, but I think I'd be much happier out there on my bike riding.

I leave with the family on Saturday for a long anticipated and much needed two-week vacation with the family. Because much of my life revolves around bicycles, the trip was booked back in April with anticipation that I would be cycling while at our destination. Another classic example of how planning is fraught with disappointment :) No cycling planned, but I do look forward to spending some time playing with the family.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone
