Just as I was planning a new start (see previous post) , life decides to put a stop gap into my plans .
I was all ready for my weekend ride , trimmed up the bike from the dirt and extra stuff I carry , charged the MP3 Players battery , so I was well on my way to get another weekend ride .
But the Health demons decided that I am not giving them enough of me, so they gave me an Airways and lung infection , breathing is painful , I even had to skip on my morning walk with the four legged miracle (that can tell you how much pain I am in).

On the better news section : I’ve been to the Doctor and I am now 76 kg . that means I lost almost 6kg since I started training for this , if I can loose another 5kg i’ll be very happy .

It is a 45k ride and has some nice hills to add some difficulty to the ride. It also has some very badly maintained roads on some sections , so that is not much fun .
I did my first ride this last Sunday , my time in total was not good , nearly 2 hours for a 44k ride , but as it is a new base ride to start from , I should no be too hard on myself …should I ?
