Bit of a downer, in the car today as I have stuff to do today that needs a motor. But hey ho, crack on!
The pedal home was great last night, over the Beeches, footage below. I’ve experimented with adding audio to the clip as my panting is totally out of control, well it is a beast of a climb! I found it pretty difficult to choose background music, so I picked The Long Run, by the Eagles as I thought the title pretty apt and Set the record straight, by Reef, just ‘cos I like it!
My mindset about hills is changing too I’ve noticed, I don’t dread them anymore, I still find them painful, but the fear has gone. I’m wondering when that happened?
Today is the last day here at Smethwick this week so it’ll MTBing tomorrow and Thursday. But Friday is a cracker, wifey said she wants to pedal with me, so I’ve chosen a towpath pootle around Alvechurch with a suitable pub stop at lunchtime. Can’t wait!
