Pedalling

Well I’m back in work today proper by bike. I came in on my road bike over The Beeches and through Harbourne. I averaged just short of 17mph which while sounds ok for a middle aged fat  bloke, must be tempered with the small peice of info that it is mostly downhill and I had a pretty strong tailwind.

I’m guessing my average home won’t be anywhere near 17mph.

It’s been a pretty trying time at home the last few months. I’m tired, no energy and I feel like I’ve had the shit kicked out of me. While, (as the cliche goes) I’m glad to be in work for the rest, it really was a trememdous effort just to get my sorry arse here. I could have quite easily stopped in bed. Which is ridiculous really as I’m not sleeping that well when I am in bed!

I know my weight loss has took a knock, but I also know every program isn’t linear. Or a  truism from my past life, no plan ever survives first contact with the enemy.

I’ve had my share of metaphorical enemies lately…I’m looking for peace to break out.

  1. I love the “not surviving first contact with the enemy”, in my case it’s first, second….and last, still there’s always the next time, you’re always going to stay in a positive state of mind pedalling a bike. Do you get my drift?
