I made it home in pretty good shape yesterday amazingly enough, especially after the carnage that was my morning commute when everything was horrible and not working right (me not the bike). I’m not keeping an eye on ride times or any other stats bar mileage and weight at the moment, but I did break the hour by 3 and a half minutes yesterday which if memory serves is a record pedal for the home journey. I was held up at traffic lights a lot too so for me I must have been flying. How does that work then?
Weekly weigh in showed a 4Ib loss which is great, especially as I have only pedalled 48 miles this week instead of my usual 96. Conditions and school closures had a very detrimental effect on my commuting. Hopefully the canal will be fit for pedalling on Monday and I can crack on. I have a thought to break the 100 miles next week. I may just do a “park and ride” next Friday to get a cheeky 12 miles in and take the total to 108 miles for the week. Still in 2 minds about that yet. Also work might intervene with bloody meetings.
This afternoon brings the interview for the Radio show mentioned earlier in the week. It’s for BBC 5 Live no less. But the show is broadcast at 0300hrs on Tuesday mornings. Swings and roundabouts eh? Although it available to download as a Podcast.
I hope to get an off road ride in tomorrow, but obviously I’ll need to recce the tracks close by first to see if they’re rideable further out, I’ll take a few bits of footage of that if I do go.
Miracles of miracles, we have a baby sitter tonight for the Spawn of Satan, much respect to Mum in Law who is taking her life in her hands to step into the breech. Me wifey and daughter are off to see Avatar tonight after a quick trip to the pub. Although I don’t admit it to most or bore anyone with it, I’m a massive Sci Fi fan (geek) and I’ve been looking forward to this for a while. I’ve read mixed reviews about it so I’m going with an open mind. But 2 hours 40 minutes seems a tad too long. I’m not good at sitting in a cinema for anything much over an hour and a half. Kills my back too, me and cinema seats are not a match made in heaven.
