Working Hard!!!!

There was a palpable frisson of excitement in the bedroom this morning like a charge of electricity. It had been 15 months since I’d ridden the old girl, but today, more than ever, with the blood coursing afire through my veins, I was more determined than ever to get astride her…… Yes. It was Pinarello time!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
So despite the temperature being close to Absolute Zero, I donned Arctic clothing and headed off for what I thought might be 15-20 miles. But no! So great was it that I did 40 miles. And not any 40 miles, but 40 bloody hilly miles!! All around the beautiful country side outside Harrogate. What a pleasure! And for some bizarre reason, I even chose to cycle up Dacre Bank towards Brimham. This hill, at 33% gradient in places, has always been my nemesis, and generally I only tackle it once each year. But today I managed it fine (very slowly, so slowly in fact that at one stage my GPS told me I’d stopped when I actually hadn’t!) and just shows how much fitter I am now than this time last year. Or any year come to that. I honestly think I’m fitter now than I’ve ever been, although with a 31 mile run fast approaching in March that’s probably just as well.
I was so eager to get out this morning that I forgot to slather my bum with arse cream. Net result – one very tender derriรจre and related nether regions! However, I’m sure that there’s a very comfortable chair awaiting me in The Coach….
Charlotte tends to leave me with a list of jobs to complete during the day. Topping this list is “Get a job”. But I’m a bit loathe to rush into it, after all, it’s only been 13 months since I last worked, and I don’t want to over do it. Patience, I say, patience….. This work thing? Very over rated!!
