I have been enlightened...
...to how much my fitness has dropped off.
I have followed the stereotype and allowed myself to become lazy over the start of the winter.
It all started well with going on the rollers 3-4 times a week but that slipped by the middle of december and today was the first time on the bike since then (shameful I know)
To say i deserved to suffer is fair enough but i had forgotten how much cycling can hurt. For the first time in a long long time I actually had to stop to save me from falling over.
The one benefit of this is that it's given me a kick up the arse to get it together and shift the weight and get fighting fit again.
The revolution has started...
