In retrospect, I should have locked my bike up at the nearest traffic sign and take the bus to the PT. My time schedule had included the fact that I walk slower when I'm carrying my bike. But the fact is that it never occured to me to lock up my frozen bike and go on without it. The projected high for tomorrow is above freezing. I could have gotten it home tomorrow.
Now that my body won't cooperate, I need to train my brain to remember what my body actually can do. And to accomodate where it can't. And I need to soak in a hot bath. Carrying that bike made me ache like an old person. It's hard work learning to be old.
