I'm not ready for the violent efforts, I know they are there for the taking but I'm not there yet. I like to take the miles as they come this time of year, the skis aren't yet away and the bike is always ready but sometimes the engine is slower to get revving, no red lining, or the that spells other issues. Quietly putting in the hours until the picture matches the still life. Maybe mid April or it can be May. But, for now it's slow days allowing the weather and the engine to work as one unit, forcing isn't the proper way, lazy days only spell surfeit, getting in the time is most important, by any means necessary.
