The Winter Blahs

Regular readers (all 3 of you), will have noticed a lack of blogging in the past few weeks. All I can say is winter sucks. It’s cold, wet and windy, with dashes of hail and snow so I’ve been hiding inside by the fire feeling blah (and putting weight back on, grrrrr). I haven’t even been getting to the gym, although I have managed to ride to work most days it really isn’t enough. So on Tuesday I finally forced myself off to the gym and it was really good.
Unfortunately now I’m feeling really sick. I hate to say I’m getting the flu because its bandied about so often when people feel slightly yucky, but this isn’t a cold and has left me feeling achy, tired and incoherent, with chills and flushes. It’s very annoying as this weekend looks fantastic for riding and I’m finally feeling a bit motivated to get out there again. Well I guess I’ll be resting up and filling out my Molesworth entry form (yay only 4 months to go). I’m planning on starting a more structured training regime in August for the race. I’m currently reading The Mountain Bikers Training Bible, so hopefully that will help.
Bring on the good weather I say!
