Here I am, back again..
I am struggling to get myself out and on the bike this year so far. My won’t power seems to be stronger than my will power. I know I should be cycling because of all the benefits I gain from it, and when I am out I enjoy it, but it seems all to easy to find a reason not to go out at the moment.
I went out on Tuesday morning and, having made the effort, I enjoyed my ride, albeit a very brief one. The sun was shining, not a lot of wind why wouldn’t I want to go out? This time last year I was riding at least twice week and more often than not three times a week. My last ride was ten days ago, having said that there was a five day trip to Devon within that time. There have been opportunities every day since I returned, nothing wrong with the weather, nothing wrong with my bikes.
Because I get out so infrequently at the moment every time I do go its a struggle due to lack of fitness so I really do need to buckle down and get my a**e into gear as they say. I need to get that average speed bak up to where to it was or else I will need a new wardrobe. All the clothes I was slipping into easily last year are feeling a little ‘snug’ at the moment.
