Lets just say I'm at 1

Have been way too busy to post recently, between punctured bike tyres and 250 mile round trips to buy a campervan there hasn't been much time, oh and tennis elbow is still bugging me.

However managed an ultimate warrior last night so that's good.  Need to get something done as I'm moving house in a few weeks and will have to carry everything down from the third floor and up to the 4th

Bike all fixed and running again but I really need more sleep. Another 28 mins ride in this morning. Should be able to make some of that up on the way home, assuming my bike doesn't break that is!

oh was I tired this morning. Pottled in on the bike and hoping to go a bit faster on the way home.

Yeah I managed half an interval on the way home before my pannier rack broke and I had to nurse my beast of the streets home.

Cycled to work this morning but didn't bother with any intervals on the way in. May try for a few on the way home instead when my body is a bit more awake. No pain from the knees on the way in so it seems that raising the saddle on my wheels has fixed that problem. My elbow is also getting better so I may try to tackle an UW upper body later in the week.

I don't know what my home trip time was because I stopped to by flowers for my wife (no special reason, well, other than it was her). I did get in 5 intervals on the way though.

Took yesterday off completely (even took the lift instead of stairs at work). Now that I have the habit of getting some exercise on a regular basis its time to get the habit of resting. Our bodies do not get fitter and stronger from the exercise we do. Exercise basically damages our muscles, the improvement comes from the repairs that the body goes through. No time to rest means no time to repair and no improvement.

Also made it to training last night. First session of the club I set up and since I'm in charge I kind of have to go.

Decided to try for an extra interval this morning. I also started them at a later point in the trip to try and hit less lights. That makes 4 intervals today and to be honest that 4th one was tough, still without a challenge there is no need to improve. As I said before, if I can get some discipline then things will start to change.
