So today was not strictly a rest day, more of an active rest day. I biked to work. The reason was because I cannot do it tomorrow and I have sort of promised myself a real rest day on Friday.
At 7 O’clock this morning it was really dark and I was willing it to get lighter. 7.15 still willing, 7.20 thinking that maybe this wasn’t such a good idea, 7.30 as I woke the children up really thinking that I had lost my marbles. At least it wasn’t raining. As I left the house I realised just why it was so dark. It was foggy. Yuck.
By this time there was no going back in my mind. I arranged my backpack so that it was wearing a reflective vest, my son turned my lights on for me and off I set…..wearing 1 glove because I couldn’t find the other. To be clear, I don’t have to travel on the main roads as there is a cycle path most of the way. It does take me through a village that I could bypass which also happens to contain rather a steep hill but I would rather that than land up under a car!
Even though I stopped to take these photos I was still 20 minutes which was not bad going.
My legs did scream a bit on the way home after last nights run but I feel so much better for biking. I have more energy than I do when I drive.
On the way home it was drizzling but no longer foggy. I did wonder what I would do if it got all icy though. What do you think?
