Bit of an update. For the last two days i have been doing a full 40 minute session twice a day, yesterday’s morning session I got carried away and kept going a at full tilt for another 5 minutes and ramped up the resistance! I did feel it on the later session though- I had to cut short my 5 minute cool down because I just ran out of steam.
Today is a day of rest and cake(yes I know I shouldn’t but Allies made a ‘test’ cake before Henri’s real birthday cake!) only two slices though…..!
My neighbour Simon rode up the hill to my place today, to show me his old Peugeot race bike, about 10 kg with the gear changes on the down tube! Bikes have come on a long way since that had it’s day. I took it for 100 m down the road, but seat height was too high, and the frame barely let me get my leg over, so I walked it back to him. Just shows how important it is to size your bike to your dimensions. The breaks were very inefficient too, but it had spent the last 14 years or so stuck in the loft…. I do hope my bike (when it comes) fits me better than that did! It was surprisingly twitchy to steer too, I’d have hated to have had to take my hands off the bars to change gear.
Feeling guilty having a day off….
