Well, it’s been a year. To be honest, I completely forgot that this blog even existed and then it just seemed to pop into my head; I wonder if it’s still there and if anyone else reads it? Well, it is and few people still do, so…..
What to report? Not a lot, if truth be told. The last year has mainly been coffee rides, a few park runs, a little bit of zwifting, and that’s been about it. My feet and ankles continue to plague any chance of meaningful running. Some days I can barely walk. I should do more to investigate what’s going on and I have a few suspicions but at the moment I cannot face doing anything about it, save for just being careful and doing no running. I managed to squeak under 20 mins at Bushy Park run last November and that was my last run.
The miserably cold winter has made it no fun dragging myself out into the wattage cottage do some zwifting, so I started to do a bit of riding on my commute home as I was already togged up in my cycling gear. Despite the absolute woefully pot holed roads and terrible driving from a few drivists, it was (a bit) more enjoyable than sitting in a damp shed. I needed to train for something so I entered the KWCC Gently Bentley 200km audax ride, which happened last month and I managed to convince Suzie and Simon to join me. It was fab. Really lovely countryside, a pretty relaxed pace and lots of coffee and junk food. I finished it with a smile on my face and that was a good feeling after feeling that exercise just seemed like a lot of effort. It’s been good focussing on other areas of my life and I’m trying to achieve a bit more balance with everything and I think I’m getting there.
So I’ve got a couple more audax rides planned in the near future. I’ll try to remember to come here and actually put something up. It’s been a while.
