It was great to be back on our bikes today. We have had 2 days off cycling and its been great. We did go to Aylsham on Wednesday afternoon, by bus. We had a good look about, which took about 15 minutes and then went to Tesco for some food. Back again on the bus and out with the dogs some 20 minutes later.
Thursday, we were going to ride but after a 3 hour dog walk, we decided not to. It was supposed to be a 90 minute walk but Millie the Terrier decided to chase some errant squirrels and got herself lost. Once found, we arrived home 3 hours to the minute after we had initially left. Bike riding was not an option after that.
Friday was a good ride. We were both a bit tired but the tiredness was nothing in comparison to Tuesdays. All in all it was not too bad. We went there and back the direct route as we had to pick up some brake pads from the Boundry lights so had to slog up the hill. It was not too bad so our fitness must be improving. Weight loss must be occuring too as we had our cycling shorts under our jeans and there was bags of room for them. All that pasta must be doing the trick.
Probably going on our bikes again on Sunday, which is a shame as I would have liked to have completed the next 100 miles by Saturday but the weather forecast is wet, wet and then more wet. We are a bit nesh nowadays.
Miles today: 15.11

Feelings: Better than the last ride.
