On my bike…procrastinating a 25k run

12 Jul

I am so proud…gosh! I actually got on my bike…my bike with my spankin’ brand new chain and coggy things and my new granny gear…and new cables and new cateye computer…and I biked for 2.30. I was hesitant to go, I am nervous on my bike, scared of traffic, scared of the wind, scared of rain…god! I sound…well…errrr…pathetic. Anyhoo..my bike was a smooth ride, gear changes gorgous. I made it up Rata road..(steep…) with my granny gear…
Today, Sunday, it is blowin’ a gale, it is sideways raining and I have been procrastinating since 6am…I need to get out and do my 25k run. Shall I wait for the rain to stop being so sideways looking? ..hmmm…
I promise you, my dear avids, that I will, I will complete my 25k sometime today.

    I’m supposed to be running 25km today as well. Argh, and now it’s started raining, to add to the howling Southerlies and freezing cold. Looking at Dave’s schedule, I’m down for 7km tomorrow. If I retreat to the gym and do 7 on the treadmill this morning and start work an hour early tomorrow, then perhaps I can do my 25km tomorrow night. T he wind’s supposed to be easing off by then. It means two and a half hours of running at the end of a work day but ….

    I guess I REALLY don’t want to run out there right now!
