I have. I’m supposed to be riding 2-4 times per week, for one hour each time. Late Friday night, I got a phone call that my sister had taken my mom to the ER. After many phone calls and conversations with various people, I packed up my girls (and their school books) and headed for the big city. My dad has Alzheimer’s, so someone has to be with him all the time. There was no room to bring a bike or trainer, so I’m here for a week with nothing to ride. I’m going to try to get my exercising in by walking, but that means I won’t have much to say about cycling this week. That’s life, right? Things happen and you have to adjust your expectations. The priority right now is making sure mom has time to recuperate and taking care of dad. I will exercise and post when I can.
How do you deal with the setbacks that inevitably occur? Would love to hear from you.
