I had cricket yesterday so wasn’t at work. I prepared with a small leg loosener after the boys left for school. I have finally discovered the route builder on Strava. It shows all the of road trails! I plotted and planned and then gave up and went where the wheels wanted to go. I could waste so much time planning on routes that I already know instead of just riding.
It was gloriously sunny and mild. I wobbled along bone jarring, rutted byways and bumpy bridleways. There was still mud about. I stopped for brekkie and a stretch. I felt grateful for the solitude and wanted to stay forever. But after lazing about in the sun, I headed back home to do Dad things. Mowing the lawn has become another pre-match ritual.
The morning commute replacement ride and lawn mowing does nothing for my batting form. So far with this routine, I have scored 13 runs in 2 innings. However, it’s not all gloom as I got a bowl yesterday and enjoyed a run around in the sun and all I need to do now is find another club to play at and find some form.
