After the dark day that was yesterday I woke in better more determined form… I got the bike out and hit the lagan towpath. I can’t speak more highly of it; I just love getting out and watching the world go by as I cycle past. I went for the same distance as last week (11ish miles). I was fighting some moderate wind occasionally on the way back which was a little extra work for the legs and boy they are feeling it! I made it in 50 minutes.
Last week I was shattered for the three days following and I’m hoping the aftermath is no where near the same this week. I think I may push for two outings this week with the second perhaps coming on Thursday. I promised myself that I would look back on the positives over the last 4 or so weeks to keep myself focused. So pardon the review if it bores you but its more for the author than the reader. I love how bloggin helps me process!
