There are always two scheduled ‘rest days’ during the Tour. Personally, I save them for when I need them, so that’s why there’s no ‘day fifteen’ 😉
Today was a ‘rough’ (vast understatement) day, but I did get a massive amount of spinning done.
Letsee… the day started off with thirty minutes of spinning after breakfast… we left the house. On the way there we received a few phone calls but didn’t answer on time (thought nothing of it). When we reached our destination a family friend ran up to tell us that my mother had been in a car accident and three of my siblings were with her. The next few hours were a mess of trying to find her, trying to find the kids (another family friend passing by picked them up; eventually we all met up at the hospital). Long story short, the people are fine, the car is totaled, and I spun another half hour or so in the waiting room.
After that… ran a couple errands… rushed home because of an impending storm… binge-watched NCIS on Netflix while spinning while a MASSIVE thunderstorm raged outside (did I ever mention how much lightning terrifies me? No?) There’s the possibility of the storms restarting/continuing all night, so I doubt I’ll get much sleep.
Total of five and a half hours of spinning.
