The clock’s ticking down to the start of 2010, I’m afraid I’m not feeling very jovial. Over two weeks since I had a ride on my bike, either one, because of ICE.
I’m determined to go for a ride in the morning, because there’s a saying about doing things on New Years day, which totally escapes me for the moment. Something along the lines of …. if you do something on New Years day, you’ll be doing alot of the same through the new year….
Suppose I’m just superstitious.
It’s dry out and so, even though the temperature is forcaste to drop to -3 degrees centigrade, means there should be no ice out there in the early hours to ambush me. No exercise on the bike has left me feeling, I don’t know, just old. I’m feeling stiff after sitting down for an hour, and my legs are creaking, when I walk up and down stairs. It’s amazing how quickly, and by the way, I would never describe myself as being anywhere near fit, one loses any kind of tone/capability/ or fitness for an activity of some sort.
Which obviously means, I’ve got to regain that “tone”, or whatever you wish to call it. Sadly, that makes the pimple of a hill, at Aberdulais, which I’ve always thought of as my nemesis, even more daunting.
Wish me luck for the morning, and a Happy New Year to everyone out there in cyberspace, cheers.
