Forced Indoors

With two days off in a row, I expected to be feeling fresh and raring to go today. But that wasn’t really the case. I felt fresh enough, but raring to go? Not so much.

Partly this stems from how my ride ended on Wednesday. I felt a bit cheated, my ride having to be cut short.

Also, I am a bit blind and thought my replacement tyres were coming tomorrow (Sunday 21st), but are in fact only coming next Sunday (28th). So my motivation took a dive as I really wanted to get back outdoors as soon as possible, and ideally cover off the rest of my route from Wednesday, and a bit more.

Anyway, it looks like I’m going to be forced indoors for a while. It’s not the end of the world – most of the time I’m working, or the weather is bad, so really it’s only the weekends that offer a true chance at an outdoor ride.

And I can survive one more weekend indoors.

There’s a Pride Ride that I’m going to attend tomorrow – always enjoy that one. And there are the other apps to try – really need to get one of them installed on my laptop. I keep putting it off. I think a big part of that is because I don’t want to have to ride too hard. Laziness creeping in all over the shop.

Anyway, a 50km ride, 800 calories burned, all positive stuff.

Hopefully do something similar tomorrow, and that will polish off a middling week.

Can’t shake that frustrated feeling though – only an outdoor ride can do that, I feel.
