Relaxing Day

I’ve had a relaxing day today. I built Jamie’s new Mini greenhouse and she and Megan planted some seeds and put them in the greenhouse (pictures in the gallery later). I got out Jan’s old bike and pumped up the tyres and fixed the gears so Kim can have it. Kim wants it to go riding with Megan on her new bike.
We spent a couple of hours just sitting in the sun chilling. It was nice and relaxing.

I finally got my bike out the shed and pumped up the tyres and checked the gears. It’s now been two years since I rode on my bike. Far too long. I went on a quick trip to the local park and back to check it was OK. I’ll have to get back into the habit if using it.
I used to cycle to and from work on it — 7.5 miles each way, and before that when I was working in Macclesfield, up to 20 miles a day on it. It kept me super fit.
I’m going to build myself up slowly so I don’t overdo it, but I intend to get back to doing 15 miles a day if I can.

  1. My seven and a half miles into work is the only thing that wakes me up enough to make it through the rest of the day. I’m still a bit, erm, portly, but looking at pictures from before I got back on my bike, I have lost a bit of weight.

  2. Ian, thanks for your comment.
    I went swimming today and my swim shorts from a couple of years ago were rather snug! 🙂
    I’m hoping to slim down on the bike too!
