I aimed to set off this morning at 07:30, giving myself a full hour to get there, get showered and sat at my desk as normal. I got all my stuff together the night before so that I could concentrate on just checking the machine over and getting started. I left at 07:28 and ploughed on up to the the Rushey Way, Beech Lane, Wilderness lane, Wokingham road and on. By the time it got to the downhill bit, I was knackered. I'd not really overdone it en route but the whole turning of legs thing is actually really hard work.
Traffic wasn't as much of a problem as I thought it was going to be. I bottled the right turn onto Beech lane at the Rushey way 'cos traffic shoots straight across the roundabout and I was already feeling 'the burn' having ridden up hill until then. I even tucked my sock in. Yes, I am the height of cycling fashion, with my day glow tank top.
It's nice having a shower in the office. I sweated like a stuck pig.
I'm feeling a bit wobbly-legged at the moment, so will take it easy on the way home. I'm running Icar tonight, so I'm leaving work a little early to make my journey home a bit more relaxing. I do have to get up the Wokey road, after all.
Tomorrow, I might get the bus in. Just to give my legs a break. Otherwise, I'll not be able to stand up and jump about at Carter USM this coming Friday.
