I realised I was missing cycling yesterday when I saw Cathy’s Facebook posts of Janathon bike rides. I’ve not been out on my bike for a few weeks because It was away in the shed over Christmas to get it out the kitchen! Fortunately it is now free from its shackels and I whizzed out on it to the shops yesterday. It wasn’t far but it felt good.
I couldn’t face a run first thing this morning. I couldn’t settle down to do any work or chores either. Only one thing for it, get out on my bike!
It was a great ride, no rain and the sun was shining making me wish I’d worn my sun glasses. It was a bit windy (the weather not me) so I had an extra workout on some sides on the park battling into the wind. I cycled to Hyde Park and did 2 laps in the Sunshine with a big grin on my face before heading home full of energy.
I continued to feel good for the rest of the day and was (a bit) more productive. I was still feeling bouncy this evening and as it was not raining for a change I went out to run my tempo run which I wimped out of yesterday.
Janathon day 9. 1 hour cycling (9.7 miles) and 3.15 miles run.
I cut across Holland Park on my route (where I have to get off and walk). Holland House was looking good silhouetted against the blue sky so I took a photo just to prove what a lovely day it was!
