What a beautiful day it is today!!
Ben’s plan has me doing an optional easy 1 hour ride. Stress on easy ride and absolutely no more than 1 hour.
The part I am taking out of this is ‘optional‘.
Last night Nina and I went into Greenhithe to send off Jacob and Rachel on their big OE (which, by the sounds of it, is a trip of a lifetime, and thats only the first 5 weeks.) Only having 2 beers the whole night I made sure I was in good nick for this mornings ride but as I was getting myself to sleep I started to feel a dull ache in the head. Never a good sign.
This morning all felt ok but 2 hours in and I am starting to feel a little worse for wear. With 50th birthday party ahead of me tonight I feel it would be best to skip the ride (not for the partying, but for the ride and run I have planned tomorrow) and get myself better.
So home it is, lots of vitamin C and a day in front of the Telly under the blanket.
(Nina, this is a necessity and can’t be avoided, housework is a no go and complete rest is the only option for today! :-))
As you can see, I am starting to learn my lessons and listening to my body. To all those out there training on this stunner of a day. “Enjoy it, I wish I could be there”
