That was a great re-introduction to commuting, a stiff head wind and raining. At least it wasn't snowing. But, I got here to work via the City Centre route with no Jobys to report. Albeit with an annoying creak in my stem/handlebar area.
Maybe you have (or haven't) noticed the addition to my Blog title, the "Don't ever stop" phrase in the brackets. This is a reminder to me that this battle is for the long haul, probably a lifetime one and I'd better get used to the fact. Last week I was feeling pretty cack, but could I have pedalled? Yes I probably could have. The bimble round the hills with Rafe was proof of that. The real issue I'm sure was a psychological one not a physical one. I still feel pretty lousy truth be told and my back is still giving me gip, but I pedalled in and it proves that my inner wimp Demon won the battle last week.
I've been looking back over my logs and I've noticed a pattern, usually after about 2 months there is an issue of some description that stops me pedalling, maybe I need to dial in a week off every 2 months to provide a natural R&R period? If I deliberately don't pedal instead of coming up with reasons not to then maybe my morale might not be so damaged? Interesting one that. April the 5th is my next break then, maybe.
