I'm under a good bit of stress at the moment. Work is crazy busy, I'm building a new house that is months behind schedule and life in general it just keep building. I didn't sleep well last night and woke up this morning a bit on edge. I'm trying to keep things under control with my staff but by 9am I knew today was going to be one of those bad days. Rather than barricading myself in my office for the day I grabbed my gear and went for a ride. I had planned on riding after work so I had everything with me.
30K later I feel much more relaxed and in a far better frame of mind to tackle the day.
I'm almost at my first 100K now was well not bad for a new rider in his first week!
