You know what it’s like. Trying to get some form. Taking the nasty medicine that is hard training. Coming back from rides with aching legs, sore back, head done in. But you just know it’s got to be done. This is when you pay for the good days.
Like yesterday, working hard, going nowhere, can’t seem to get on top of the gear, off the pace, behind schedule, headwind all the way around, chewin’ on the handlebars. Big races coming up, want to do well. If it was easy it wouldn’t be worth doing would it? Plus, the pleasure and satisfaction will be directly proportional to the pain and dis-satifaction I have right now. Push on! 🙂
A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down…….you need the occasional cake stop! 🙂
Cake Stop! It’s less cake he needs not more 😉
I remember riding with this guy who would say “if you want your mum and feel sick then you are trying hard enough”. You know you love it.
I’ve ridden with that guy many times. I think you’ll find it’s, “if you don’t feel sick and want your mum you ain’t tryin’ ‘ard enuff!”. That’s wot he says. But he knows nothin!
Onward and upward 🙂
Good post- thats right Steve you only get out what you put in…. pain is just weakness leaving the body. I’m back on the bike tomorrow after a months repose, so i’ll literally be excreeting weakness! May even write a post to celebrate!
