Don’t count your chickens…..

I was so looking forward to getting in my 5000 miles this week but it didn’t happen. I have got some miles in though but just very locally.

The week started well with an early morning ride as the run was coming up.

By Wednesday I was feeling decidedly uncomfortable in my tummy. No sickness or anything else just a dull discomfort but i still did a ride. It got worse on Thursday and I didn’t feel like a longish ride so again we stayed very local.

Then the weather deteriorated badly with rain and gale force winds. Still , not as bad as some parts of Yorkshire that actually had snow!!

Again by Saturday, it was still windy but at least dry so it was another short trip but this time I bought some thread for a quilt I am working on.

I still don’t feel tip top but will just take care of myself and not over do it.

So sadly, I can only report 52 miles for the week and YTD 4957 miles


  1. Life is full of ups and downs. Health is priority, if your body says take a day off, then do it. Best wishes. ilona

    • too true Ilona. its as well to rest up when you need it

  2. Hope you feel better soon. True what Ilona says – sometimes I think times of illness (when it’s not too bad anyway!) are a bit of a gift as they make us slow down.

  3. So near but yet so far! Bad luck. Look after yourself.
