Have a break...(it's holiday season)

by jimmythecuckoo   October 14, 2010  


That's all folks, that is my 2010 season boxed up and put on top of the wardrobe never to see the light of day again.

I am now in the process of 2 weeks off the bike (with a bit of exercise coming from light jogging) and taking the chance to rest both legs and mind.

2010 has been a bit mad. I have tried to do a lot of cycling around our wedding and honeymoon. Fit in a couple of sportives around a change of job and selling the house, and training around the family illness and the loss of a much loved pet...


...and I am completely worn out.

The alcohol ban is over for a period and I am loving getting the taste of cider and ale back on my tongue.

It's so nice to be relaxing and taking things easy, but I know that by this time next week I will be pining outside the shed to get the single speed back out and get on the roads.

But I will stand tough, you can do yourself a lot of good by having a break you know...

Hey mate, you should come running with me, I am hoping to get my miles up over the winter to get my general fitness up for next Spring.

I aim to run on Mondaysm Wednesdays & Fridays, then ride on Saturday & Sunday.

Cyclists do it on their bikes!!

Currently sitting in JFK airport 3 weeks and 1 day since my last ride waiting to fly home. Can't wait to get home and start riding again on Saturday. I am newly retired and have the Great Divide Race in June 2011 to target.

Enjoy your rest - what are your 2011 targets?

My targets for 2011 are not really cycling specific, all about the first baby arriving in April.

Will wait and see how that changes life Smile
