I promised a coworker that I would ride this afternoon. Because this morning’s weather was predicted (correctly) to be really nice for riding, last night I contemplated pulling a double-ride day again. However when I awoke there was no way to convince my body to do that today. Perhaps I’ll punish myself by riding tomorrow morning on what is normally a rest day.
Jealousy Or Envy?
I heard from one of my classmates last night that he and his partner are going to Germany in a couple months to do a multi-day bike ride along the Danube. He knows of my interest in cycling because I’ve spoken about it often in class and recounted my disappointment of missing out on Iowa.
I’ve mentioned before that 2016 will be another year of cycling for me, and at least one of my trips will be multi-day cycling related (so far the leaders in the clubhouse are Germany and Vermont).
Of course I am also desperately trying to upset my personal applecart, so I have no idea what my future holds, not that any of us really do.
Sprechen Ãœber Deutsch…
Last night was another rough class for me. There are times I think I understand about what my teacher speaks, and then there are nights like last night.
Without a doubt I understand much more German than I did this time last year, and I am certain that if I stick to taking classes and studying outside of them (and I will on both accounts) that I will some day be fluent. However, to sit among a group of people and feel lost it a little disheartening. Of course this assumes that my classmates are not equally lost.
Oh well, time to work on my applecart.
