I’m getting really bored of not being well now – I felt OK again last week and the day after my 35 mile ride I felt the best I had for a long while, only to feel ill again the next morning. I don’t have any energy at the moment and am feeling miserable. I really want to start winter training properly and I keep getting ill or injured, it’s so frustrating!
I was feeling better this week, and even managed a 35 mile ride on Tuesday – it was a bit wet to begin with but in a weird kind of way I enjoyed being out with rain being blown into my face! Happily my winter bike is running fine and the mudguards are doing their job. My legs weren’t too bad the next day, and I was feeling optimistic that I might finally be getting better, but I woke up on Thursday feeling sick – one day I’ll feel properly fit again! Hopefully I’ll get out for a quick ride this weekend and start developing a proper training plan next week.
I’ve not been out much recently due to illness – I had a nasty cold and wasn’t sleeping well. I did manage to get out for a ride yesterday though, I’ve decided to switch to the winter bike full time now and it’s working well with its new headset – I think I need to adjust the saddle a little though. It was very windy yesterday so cycling along the seafront was pretty hard! On the other hand, I managed a year’s best time on one westbound Strava segment – nowhere near my best of course but it was a good workout for my legs! Hopefully I can get out a bit more frequently as I feel better.
I’ve not been cycling much recently as I’ve had a couple of bad weeks sleep-wise – after last week’s 102km I’ve only managed one ride of 63.2km. I might go for a quick ride today just to get a quick workout, but I was up at ridiculous o’clock again and whilst not as tired as yesterday I’m not sure if I should go for it or not.
It’s very frustrating as I had all these plans to start getting fitter but as my youngest son isn’t sleeping it throws everything out. Hopefully this period will pass soon and my training can get back on track. Speaking of track, I still have my velodrome session to book!
