Lately I’ve been feeling pretty burned out. I’m not sure what it is, but I don’t’ really feel like doing anything at all. Sure, my real job has been sucking the life outta me for a while now, but I’m not sure if that’s the only thing. I haven’t even felt like riding much either.
Yeah, you heard me.
It rained a lot here lately and the temps turned a bit colder, but I think I had this feeling long before that. I had fun at the kids ride and all that, and it puzzles me why I can’t seem to want to get out and ride on my own. Is it because I’m tired of the single speed, maybe?
I really love riding with just one gear. The challenge, the simplicity, the chance to act an elite prick because I’m not part of the mainstream (okay, I made that last one up.) It’s definitely making me stronger and all that, but for some reason I still want to ride gears once in a while. There’s nothing wrong with that, right? Initially I thought about not replacing my geared frame and riding the SS full time, but I’ve changed my mind. Although I don’t have a geared bike built at the moment, I will have one eventually.
I mean, really soon.
I’m not too excited to build another bike though. In fact, I’m not too excited about much these days. I haven’t even been drinking much beer, and that troubles me (I usually like beer, you know.) I’m in some kind of funk, and I’m not sure I know how to shake it. I’m not thinking about giving up bike or beers, but something’s gotta happen.
I just have no idea what it is.
Maybe building up a new bike will snap me out of this shit, or bring me down even more. I know there are plenty of things I can do, but maybe I need a break from those “same ol’ things.”
Maybe I’ll be back tomorrow.
Probably though, because I have nothing else to do with my mornings.
*Before you get all concerned and start e-mailing me or asking Little Miss Sunshine what’s wrong, I’m okay. Just a little burned out. Nothing serious.
