Damn You, Cycling!
So far this month, I’ve cycled 89.96 miles, all of them leisure. I don’t do that commuting lark as I work in a poncy suit in a poncy office and on the only dress-down day we have (Friday), I take my daughter to school which is 6 miles in the wrong direction.
So, What’s The Problem?
I always ride on Tuesday nights, for around 11.28 miles – not that I’m a creature of habit or anything! Then ever other Saturday, I have the day to myself: I get a few chores done then I have a few hours out, and always hit somewhere between 25 and 30 miles.
No problem. Until this week.
My schedule would have me do my 11.28 miles tonight and the #May100 would be done, woohoo!
Tonight is Tuesday. Autopilot Loop night. Tonight, Utility Masters Rovers Of The South United are playing in a football match against the mighty Gazprom (sponsors of Schalke and one of the biggest companies in the universe – but we’re just playing a bunch of chancers from the Manchester office).
So I can’t ride tonight. “No problem“, I hear you cry, “Just ride over the weekend.” Well, this weekend I’m off to Llangollen with a friend, white water rafting. It’s going to be awesome. But I won’t be riding my bike.
Tomorrow is Wednesday. Regular footy night with the lads from work. On Thursday I do the school run and we have a family evening. On Friday we’re kid-free so it’s couples night.
I have to get those 11 miles in! Now what? Huh? 🙁
