I think its understandable to say that a lack of enthusiasm for riding my bike after the puffer is an understatement brought home by the fact i removed my bike to race today with the number AND mud still attached.
quick brush down , change out the 21 tooth cog for a 16 and a lube of the chain and out we go.
Feeling stronger on the bike than ever , things i was running up pre christmas im riding up , things i rode standing im powering up in the saddle. If anything the puffer and 3 weeks rest has gained me strength in buckets.
Feeling all enthused again and im ready to tear up tarmac before work in the mornings now - I was finding it hard to get motivated for obvious reasons , id get up at 6am and eat breakfast then just sit around listening to radio till it was time to ride(4 miles) to work rather than go for some real pre-work milage.
