You know what I realised - I have not been on Bluebell in about a month. I do believe this is the longest I have gone without riding since I seriously got into it over 2 years ago... It feels strange.
But tomorrow I am allowed back on the bike. YIPPEEEE!!!!
I have been giving a lot of thought to my fitness while I am not allowed to hike or run, and of course, I am lead back to the bike. Old faithful. The thing I started on and the thing I keep coming back to.
My fitness is not great. I can no longer just pop out and do a 50km ride. And I miss that. So what to do. Well, get that back is what to do! There is just under 8 weeks till the end of the year. Can I do this?
OF COURSE I CAN!
If I stick with this by January 2 I will have my 50kms back. I am building up slow, just adding 10-20% to my long ride each week. My commute to work is nothing, I can still do that half asleep (and often do). I am sure I will be able to crank out 20kms this weekend (I hope so anyway). And from there is is just hop, skip and a jump to 50. :o) That's my theory anyway. Would love to know what you think of the plan. And I will keep you updated - remind me if I forget.
