Quote of the week.

"When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart." - Diane Ackerman

Interesting quote! I don't think I could do that while biking - I would totally crash, but I do often do that while running!

Thanks for the comments on hill work.

Nice one! It's always good when I can shift my focus to nature, even if only for an hour.

I can sort of do that while biking. Some days, it's a total zen time for me.
