Got up this morning had my normal pre ride breakfast of Porridge. Left home at 11.10 on my Mountain Bike which weighs about ten pounds more than my Scott Sub 10. Anyway I had only gone about a mile and a half my legs were feeling, not a great start. I made my way through Carshalton .
But this is where my trouble started as I left carshalton I started a steep climb but I could see know end to it in the end my body could take know more, I am afraid I had to get off and push the Bike I was disappointed about this. I did pause the Garmin while pushing the Bike so the stats are pure cycling.
Anyway near the top of the hill there was a bench, so I sat there a tad disappointed, I took the opportunity to have my Lucozade Alert, if you have not tried one of these I don't know if they work, but can tell you they taste of a very bitter Orange. Don't know if it was my imagination after about five minutes, felt like a pain in my forehead only lasted for a few moments.
After a ten minute break decided that now was the time to change direction so went left of the hill but the climbing was not finished, but from now on there was know getting off the bike.
Set off for home via a couple of laps round Beddington park and a short trip into Asda's
I do feel disappointed about getting off the bike and pushing it. After I got home I spoke to my Eldest Daughter Tammi on the phone, she said to me that I shouldn't feel bad as I have only been back on my bike less than two weeks. Which if you look at it that way she is right. Thank you Tammi for your support very much appreciated.
