As I looked out of my window yesterday I thought how bleak the view was. All I could see was trees. As beautiful as they are, it’s not much of a view.
Until I looked up and saw the sun shining. It’s funny how a simple movement can change my whole perspective of the world.
I was gutted that I crashed my bike. I wasn’t worried at all about injuring myself, it was the damage I did to my bike that upset me more. Now I’ve had time to reflect I can see that the damage could have been far worse. The bike can be fixed and I will mend. I hope to be back on the road (not literally), by the weekend.
The weather was amazing, warm sunny and dry. It would have been a perfect day to ride my motorbike, but obviously I can’t. My hand is still painful and my bike needs slight attention. I again realised how lucky I am to not carry worse injuries. I went out on my push bike. I felt amazing when I got home. Another change of perception.
After my bike ride I resistance trained at home. I’m now loading up on painkillers (dodgy knee), and going for a run. I hate running with a passion, but at least I can….another change of perception.
