Too busy to blog

Well it's been so long... I have been very busy at work hence no time to mess about with this blogging nonsense. So I am doing this when I should really be tucked up in bed with a cup of cocoa.

The biking is going really well and I am loving it! In fact I had the option to come in our family car tomorrow and decided not to bother as the last time I did it was very unpleasant indeed.

I now have the sexy new bike gear (although some might not use the word sexy...) so feel like a pro.

Actually managed to overtake another cyclist going uphill this morning (not that I'm competitive or anything) - and they were standing up on their pedals - and they had a full size bike!!! So that made me feel good (I'm told it's all in the gearing).

Played badminton for the second time tonight and then got on the bike to come home - felt like some kind of sports nut - which I definitely am not. Won a couple of games though (it was a tournament) so did better than last time. My doubles partner is very patient.

Will try and keep this up more often.

    Use low gears and stay sitting, on the hills. Your knees will thank you for it in the years to come. None of this “standing up and stomping” rubbish. Plus, as you’ve discovered, it makes you feel even better when you overtake someone:-)
