All being well, I would have been out earlier tonight. I managed to finish just about on time, and the weather outside was lovely. Nice and light, blue skies, little in the way of wind (as best I could discern), and 12c – not too shabby for March.
And then the Mrs came in and reminded me that, hey, Chris, don’t be forgetting we have parents evening tonight.
Well, one saving grace is it was virtual – or phone calls as we used to call them, before the pandemic. So I could at least be dressed and ready to go for when they were over with.
And so I was. Bike prepped, calls done, route chosen, I was out of the door at the first opportunity.
Being that it was late I didn’t get the option of much more than an hours riding time. That limited me to about 20km, all being well.
I picked a route I’ve done before that offered a little bit of everything. Long straights, some country roads, a little short punchy climbing, and generally a decent workout.
Looking at the stats I can’t complain.
If I had stayed inside today it was looking like an RGT Cycling session. Yet again I’ve missed this, but truth be told if outdoors is on offer, I’m heading out every day of the week. All the inside kilometres are about prepping me for the fun of the outdoors.
Looks like I had yet more trouble with the Tickr today. That still is a point of frustration.
In parts I thought I’d done well, but by and large my times overall today were simply average at best. You wouldn’t think so, if you were to feel how knackered my legs feel to me. Not that that’s possible. Not yet, anyway. One day, I’m sure.
What I’m kinda hoping to do is get out tomorrow at dinner time. If the weather is nice, and I’m up for it, that seems the best option. We shall see, I’ve not checked the weather.
