How much time do we waste when we could be doing something?I had planned this extra day of freedom carefully -
Saturday - ride along river (11 miles round trip) to excellent pub with girlfriend on her new bike and have a nice pint in the sun.
Sunday - Nice long ride at Haldon enjoying the fact I don't have to rush home and get my stuff together for school. Cook nice evening meal and drink decent bottle of wine.
Monday - prepare for week at school and chill.
Reality was Saturday was quite cold and windy once we got to the pub so it was a very fast pint and my girlfriend got two punctures. On Sunday I ended up lying in not achieving much and working in the afternoon in a half hearted manner as the ride was delayed due to a mate getting concussion at a works do (don't ask). So today I've been out for a quick ride and spent this afternoon working as well. Hurrah.
I say this every time there's a bank holiday - will be organized and make the most of it. Honest, no I really will this time. So on the next one in two weekends time I'm going to get me some riding. Watch this space......
