Squeezing in a bike ride

I think my blog has gone a little biking mad.  I have been thinking about a cycling holiday and I have been encouraging hubbie to think about the government cycle to work scheme (if you saw the state of his bike you would understand why!).  So I better face facts I must have an inner biking enthusiast waiting to get out!!!

I would love to have an outdoor activity to do for myself; with the boys at school I am spending far too much time on my laptop.  If I had a bike maybe I would have an excuse to get outside and have more regular fresh air!  Instead of feeling my legs cramping up from sitting too long in one position, if I carry on I will be a definite candidate for carpal tunnel syndrome anyway…

Although time goes in a whirl with chores (I do a token bit of cleaning to stop hubbie despairing completely when he comes home from a long day at work), typing and responding to emails, before long its 3pm and I am back at the school gate.  So whatever bike ride I manage to squeeze into my schedule it would have to be a fast one, I would probably need one of the racing road bikes so I could move quickly!  Burn off some calories; enjoy the wind blowing on my face then head home for a quick refresh of my inbox and a hot cuppa!  Trying my best to make it feel like an adventure the whole time...

Least if I did that I might start to feel healthier.  I might feel happier too, as too much screen time is probably no good for me.  I need to get active, to do something to improve my overall level of fitness.  My keep fit sessions were very short lived, but I could never get the hang of the different moves, whereas I know my way round a bike (just do not let me go down steep hills, when I was a child I braked on a hill and went over the handlebars!).  I need to embrace it this time round, with a positive attitude.
