STEADYING THE WOBBLY BIKE

After riding so confidently for a couple of weeks, powering along so steadily, the weekend saw me fall off my bike. Not wanting to dwell on it or allow it to keep me down, I hopped straight back on yesterday ready to power away again. I did ok yesterday but today I feel like I’m wobbling along. Its taking all my determination to stay on my bike and keep it steady.

Training this morning included a nice dose of sprint work where the sprint intervals were short and didn’t have to be done after I was already worn out. I really enjoyed it and gave it my all for 15 cycles before doing my Upper Body Prep workout. After yesterday’s leisurely start to the day and training at what was almost mid-morning, today’s 5am start wasn’t welcome. What was welcome though was the lovely euphoric feeling of a great training session coming to an end. Follow it up with protein porridge with goji berries for breakfast and it’s a great start to the day.

So as I battle the munchies today I keep reminding myself that tonight I have my favourite tuna and veges with multigrain pasta meal for dinner. Its worth looking forward to as it doesn’t in any way feel like or taste like diet food. Its almost an indulgence really.

So now that I’ve blogged about my battle today, I’m even more determined to win it. Keep busy. Eat when hungry. Drink lots of water. Go to bed feeling happy with what I’ve achieved.

Cheers all

Magda

Yummo! Sounds like a great dinner Magda!

We are having baked chicken with lemon, potato and green olives and I CAN"T wait! It is a great Bill Granger recipe and we both LOVE it!

Enjoy yours and I will certainly enjoy mine :)
