I had every intention of going to work on my bike yesterday and getting an hour or so in before and after work….it didn’t happen.
My alarm went off at 6:30am, I turned it off and next thing I knew it was 8am ( the same happened today ), quick shower, brekkie and jump in the car. Another day of interviewing and I was shattered. Its really draining as you have to concentrate so much on what people are saying, but I do enjoy it.
I walked in and Em said how knackered I looked and how I’d be daft to go out, I listened, and to be honest I didn’t need much persuading. So feeling guilty for not training I adjusted my bike – pumped up the tires, levelled off the saddle, oiled the chain and gave it a quick spruce up.
Last time I was out with John, he’d noticed that my seat was pointing slightly down – its supposed to be completely level. Thats the thing with bikes the slightest thing out of place be it peddles, seat, handlebars and it could make your ride so much more uncomfortable and actually lead to injury, so better to be safe than sorry.
When I get chance I intend to take my bike into the local shop for a proper service, and get them to just double check the fitting for me – after all I’m probably going to spend more hours on it in the months to come than I am in my car.
Anyways hopefully I’ll rediscover my energy levels as I get towards the weekend and I’ll stop slacking off…
