I did feel like an icebreaker at sea
This is what a winter commute is supposed to look like. Loads of snow and ice, freezing temperatures, darkness and a fair bit of wind. Before Xmas it was almost 10°C and raining most of the time. Didn’t feel like winter and some of the plants outside were confused as well.
And then the temperature started dropping. Then it started freezing. Then it started snowing. And at the same time my “hunger” to go out and bike was slowly fading away as well. Not that I was sofa-surfing, I still did my bit of running. But biking… Nope wasn’t there. Until somehow this weekend for some reason I started convincing myself to go out and bike to work again today. And I am sooooo glad I did. Hard work of course, but I forgot how much fun this is. Even in this kind of weather, the right clothing is everything. So. many more kilometers will be done this year, that’s for sure. And hopefully a bit more than 2013.
