Ho Hum….What day is this?
They’re all kinda running together. All these commutes, I mean. The weather is stuck in a pattern of carbon copies, and so are my commutes. Cold (below freezing) in the morning and somewhat moderate in the evening. Barely light in the morning and mostly dark in the evening. Light traffic in the morning and heavy traffic in the evening. Sameness. Familiarity. Consistency.
That theme surfaced again over the past several days when I decided to start tracking the actual moving time for my commute. Before I started tracking it, I pretty much had figured out that my longer route to and from work (10.25ish miles each way) consisted of around 80 minutes total pedaling time. Well, my statistical research proved it. The most variance I’ve had from that has been +/- 2 minutes. Never faster than 78 minutes and never slower than 82 minutes. No wonder it all feels the same.
Could this be called the Winter Doldrums?
