|LOOKING BACK TOWARDS THE FERRY FROM DEAN HILL
It's been another good week on the bike. My core fitness training has been going pretty well and I am managing to put in some reasonable mileage considering the time of year and uncertainty regarding the weather.I am trying to get some decent rides under my belt because I have to go back to Hospital again shortly for various procedures and after those I have been instructed that I will not be able to do any exercise at all for between two and six weeks. Ouch ! That is going to be really tough.

As for JD I have heard nothing. He did email me a couple of weeks ago to ask about which lighting system I would recommend for his commuting bike- but since then silence. I must chase him up at some time. Before Christmas he was keen to get out training so I must find out what has happened to him.
Riding the bikes - photography - walking etc etc and what do I find ? Not enough hours to fit it all in. I really don't know how I ever managed during all those working years. How did I find the time to do anything? Well the truth of course is that I didn't. I mean I didn't go out on the bike for a five or six hour ride unless I had a free day off . Long walks were the same. Trouble was when I had a day off there were always lot's of chores and other things that needed doing. Now every day is a day off. So the reality is that you just fill up all the extra time you now have with more and more activities. Before you know it you have more activities going on than you have the time for. I'm not complaining - it's just an observation..!
'Living the dream' I think it's called - living your life doing all the things that you want to - all the things that give you a buzz. Well if that's what it means I'm living my dream and it's GREAT...!!
