Late to Bed, Early to Rise

This week is shaping up to be a real grind and it’s only Tuesday morning!  I could tell it would go bad when I looked at my week and I would have to leave the house before sunrise and return well after sundown most of the week.

Normally, this lack of outdoor/time in the light would be depressing but there is nothing more peaceful than riding your bike through the city before anyone is awake and after everyone has gone to bed.  The decompression is great!

I’m reminded why I used to enjoy early morning training rides so much. It’s really nice to be able to cruise all over streets that are normally life threatening.  It can get so still, that I actually start to get nervous until a few minutes go by and I see another person.

Considering it’s 5am and I’ve been at it for over an hour already, I’ve got to keep this one short and sweet!
