I knew my mind needed to get out of this rut and riding always helps to keep my mind occupied, so off I went this morning. I rode through my gated community then hit the local roads for a ride through the neighborhood that ajoins my home. It was a hot and windy ride but I felt much better when I got home. I have to try to push myself for both my mental health and to help with my back pain. It is amazing how a little over ten miles can do for you mind and body.
