It was another slog yesterday. Cold with the addition of an easterly. Pleasant, warm even-in the summer as the heat breezes over from the continent. But during all the other seasons it’s cold and horrible, even when it is pushing from behind. At least it was a tailwind of sorts and with a pack protecting my back it was OK. The legs didn’t like being out on another transition from mild to cold riding, even with the tights. I just kept a rhythm and this time avoided the level crossing. Granny gears up the hills and freewheeling down was the plan to avoid further objection from the engine room.
More doing the job of 2 while we wait to interview for another administrator was followed by another late finish. I hope that Mrs Doubtfire made the shortlist. After a week of doing it on top of my day job, I’ve had enough…My rebellious legs didn’t fancy another cold ride home in the dark but it was my last of the week.
I aimed for home with a SSE cross tailwind. 2 in one day, a timely wind change. Special. Again, not especially fast. Metronomic as I sorted out the October stats in my head to take my mind off the toil.
