Yes today for the first time in months and months (probably over a year) Mr B pumped up my bike tyres and I took my bike out for an airing. We just rode to the lake, had a drink, then cycled home again. The outward trip was tough as there was a nasty wind and I felt a bit insecure. I had to become used to using gears again avoiding pitfalls and glass on the way but on the return journey I began to relax and speed up and felt good that I had actually made a start. The first cycle is always the worst and out there in the real world feels quite different from cycling in the safety of a gym!Distance: 17.5km
Max speed: 37kph
Average speed: 19kph (caution prevailed)
This afternoon Mr B and I met up with Rachelle, Kelley and CJ at KokoBlack for a yummy feast of Belgian chocolate to die for. Ewen opted to watch the motorcycle racing instead - never mind Ewen, we'll do it again, I feel confident of that! In the meantime I'll just have to run more to use up those calories!
