So the month is half over and I have yet to record a single Low Carb Commuting mile. Meanwhile, I’ve driven a ridiculous amount: 1,223 miles.
Our trip to Tennessee was part of the reason for this (in both respects), but ever since we’ve gotten back I’ve been itching to attempt a ride to work while lacking the confidence to do so. Before our trip, I was thinking that with some hard (but fun) work I could turn a 2-hour commute into something closer to an hour. Lately, though, everything about work feels more complicated as we struggle with a severely messed-up computer system switchover. I don’t seem to have any leftover mental energy to plan and psyche myself up for a challenging 20+-mile ride with no margin for error that could make me late for work.
It’s not getting light as early now, either, which is a bit intimidating. But the stupid thing is, even as I let all this fretting get in my way, I know that tackling this ride would leave me invigorated and better able to cope with work hassles. Hopefully I’ll crawl out of this rut soon!
