Christmas day is always a blur at my house. Pretty much all family comes over that day buts kinda an open house. People just come and go all day. From the kids\grandkids in the morning to the rest of everybody else later to midnight. No meals, just snacking all day. I literally lived on cheese and crackers, sausage and kringles, chips and dip and cookies all day. And I mean from 9am to 10pm (I went to bed before people left). This was one of those days I did not even walk out of the house all day, not once. I hate those days.
And I paid for it on Saturday. I got up for the group ride and felt like complete crap. I almost bailed on the ride but I knew I can’t pass these things up anymore. I need the movement. So I rolled out of bed and got dressed (cycling dressed) and attended. Turned out to be just the thing I needed. I had oatmeal at the breakfast stop and getting some normal food in me helped a ton. I felt much better after the ride than when I started.
So I ditched all the effects of Christmas day quickly and worked the store Saturday after the ride. A pretty busy day to boot.
Sunday I had plans to ride even a little bit in the morn but did not. Just could not pull enough ambition to grab a bike and ride solo on the road. And that set the tempo of the day. I did get out of the house to get some coffee mid morning but that was about it. Another wasted day. But that’s all part of the Holiday experience I guess.
This morning I went out to the park to make sure the groomer was ready to go. Temps are kinda on the way down to normal and we even have a bit of weather headed our way. 1 to 2 inches here but 5 to 7 just 60 miles north. How can we always be so close and yet so far. That big snow in Nov missed is by 60 miles south, now this one north. Crazy.
So today I prepare for the return season to start. People not liking their jersey or light set that someone got them. It’s not out of the question to have a negative day in the sales department in the next few. It happened.
So I better get to it as I have not been here a lot the last few days. Need to wax a new pair of ski’s that I actually sold on Saturday. Of all things.
