I don’t know if it’s the cold, or the sudden need for them to be doing a lot more work than they’re used to but I’m getting aching knees from all this riding. Nothing painful or uncomfortable, but just that constant reminder that they’re in recovery. Back to back meetings put the pressure on tonight and I only just managed my hour. Squeezed it in as a long commute home. Totally unprepared. No tools, spares or pump. No decent front light (just the little Photon LED). Made it back 5 minutes late for my next commitment and gave apologies. Good sense of contentment at fitting in the ride. Lots of traffic lights or a completely urban route meant another ride with a poor mileage count.

Good to see that you’re sticking at it Cris. I’m hoping I get some life back in my legs soon or the next 25 days are going to be a real slog.
Today is going to be the toughest day yet. I’m not going to finish work until about 9pm and I started at 8.30 this morning. The prospect of fitting an hour in out on the bike tonight doesn’t appeal. I’ll have to think of a good route. Actually I have been trying to think of somewhere that I can put some circuits together. Doing laps of a course not too far from home might be an interesting distraction, I just need to find a suitable low traffic, no traffic lights spot. Mmmm.
