Not a great deal achieved on the training front of late as I have been busy moving. Must be the gypsy blood in me. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and well I guess you just have get on and deal with it the best you can which is what has taken my time this last few weeks.
Moving house and taking a path not planned was not on the agenda for February though sometimes in life the things which we do not plan can often have the best results.
Once again settled I can now start to focus on training again.
I have not been on my bike for nearly a month, was two weeks without it whilst moving so I guess that doesn't count and a further two weeks I just looked at it daily propped up in it's new resting place. I took the bike by the bars and jumped on for my first ride in a while on Wednesday with a friend who used to compete, Iron Man, New York Marathon etc I knew it would be no easy ride. Our route was a hilly one the first as soon as we set off which was not good for me as my legs tend to come into play after I have been riding a few miles or so. It was a tough ride been my first after time out, faced with hills hills hills and pedalling at a faster pace than usual. Did I enjoy the ride? would of enjoyed it more had my fitness level not taken a nose dive in the last month. Will I get back on my bike? you bet, next ride already planned.
I left my bike propped up in it's new found resting place today and opted for my trainers, I ran eight miles which was more enjoyable than my ride on Wednesday. It was a lovely day the sun was shining and I really enjoyed the miles.
