Riding a bike!
Tuesday, April 10, 2012
I am learning to ride my bicycle all over again. Never having been the most confident or proficient of cyclists I decided that rather than let it go rusty in the garage I should get back on it. Have been out a few times so far & went for a 30 minute ride with Tim on Sunday but couldn't stop the bike AND reach the ground with my feet at the same time, consequently I took a grand tumble on to the road. Now as memento's of the incident I have a lovely grazed elbow & a huge bruise on my calf where the bike fell on me & memories of Tim laughing at my fall from grace---MEN!!! Trouble with me is that I think too much about the why's & wherefore's instead of just enjoying the ride but I WILL conquer the damn thing!
Losing weight can be likened to bike riding I think ----you learn something, falter a little & then get back in the saddle! Anyway I may try again tomorrow if the wind has calmed down here. Don't think that I'll make Team GB at this year's Olympics!
