Day 8 - annnnnd relax 🙏🏻
So I’m in a mini heaven and can’t help but think I was always meant to end up here on this day. The weather has been crazy windy and so I’m ok to not be out in it!
Ironically, even in the double bed to myself I really struggled to sleep and got so hungry that I was eating a pile of pancakes at 4am!!! Lesson learnt on not eating enough and I’ve been doing some research on how to eat for long distance riding.
What a 🐽!
I have been eating all day, mostly healthy yummy satisfying food, rather than on the go food on the days I’m riding.
I‘ve done less then little!!!! I had thought I’d go on a walk but my body and mind just wanted rest and my own company.
So I've been reading a super inspiring book....
I’m hoping to finish it tonight as then one less to carry! I’m cutting back on anything I can!
I’ve done some basic plotting and pondering if I want to continue on the more relaxed basis I have the past week or if I want to step it up a notch! Watch this space this week, let’s see how it evolves!
I have added in my shoe cleats, the idea is you get more out of pedalling as you pull on the up stroke, not just not just push on the down.
This means my feet will clip in and in reality I may fall off a few times when stopping until they become second nature.
This could be a very short relationship!
Not much more to share, it’s just been a much needed rest and recharge, reflect and look forward day.
I had thought I would want to stay here at least one extra night but I’m super keen to get back out on Firefly tomorrow.
Oh and of any one has any suggestions on wind burn or whatever is called please advise. I’m wearing a sun block but my skin was super red and sensitive. Spent most the morning in covered in sudocrem!
Enjoy laughing at me looking more of a muppet 🤣🤣🤣
To another week of embracing life and seeing how it unfolds 🙃😊
