I pedalled in this morning with my base layer on, that was after I went into the garage, got my bike out and thought this morning isn't very warm! So back in the house and shoved my Helly Hansen on under my T Shirt. I wasn't expecting that this morning.
The pedal in again felt pretty slow, this time I came the direct route. I seem to be having an issue getting back into my rythmn after the week off. I'm not flowing at all and seem to be making hard work of it. I'm sure it'll click, but the bonus benefit is that my sleep pattern seems to have returned after just one day's pedalling. There we go, biking aids sleep!

Last night's pedal was along the cut and NCR5, it was wet and bloody windy, but fun all the same.

A couple of other items of interest to me. Remember a while a go I said my original Muvi helmet cam had died and that was the reason I needed to get an Ebay clone? Well it had been sat in my drawer at work since then and yesterday I came across it while looking for something else. A spur of the moment thing occurred and I took it up to our electronics guys, sad anoraks to a man who absolutely love new kit and tinkering with stuff. They were very impressed and excited by it (I said they were sad) and within an hour of leaving them alone with it they had got it working again, something about the record switch malfunctioning. So, I'm all proper Muvi'd up again! The Ebay clone can go back on the subs bench.
The last item of interest is that as this is now year 2 of this craziness I'm going to move my weigh ins to the first of every month. I was looking at my weekly weigh in graph and it showed all of the plateaus and slight rises which is what it was meant to do at the time. I transferred the data to a monthly graph and bloody hell, what a difference, it looks like steady progress instead of a weekly war!
I think that as I'm now into the change of lifestyle, a monthly weigh in will suffice and hopefully not show too many morale sapping plateaus!
I'd be interested to hear your opinions on that.
