Despite the fact that I suffered from man flu (still am) and wandered around like a bear with a sore head, despite the fact that I did not do the early morning ride (twice!) and despite the fact that I did not ride at all over the weekend, the first time in 6 months, it was a good week. Why? well it seems that eating a couple of large cookie, scoffing some of the kids sweets and eating my own a large packet of Liquorice Allsorts, I still managed to lose a pound on the scales to night, so yes it was a good week.
To be honest I was surprised, I was hoping to maintain and expecting a pound on so a pound off was a bonus. 18st 6.5lbs at the moment, lightest I have been for a long time but no where near light enough yet. Not sure if I will make the 17st 7lb mark by early May as I had hoped for, but I am still going to press on.
I felt this week has been that good that I should post a tranquil type picture to offer the post calmness and serenity…………..yeah right!! I took this picture a couple of years ago in the woods on the other side of the local heath that I often ride, I think I got the sun star more by luck than intention.
I must admit it has been several month since I took my camera out (proper digital SLR, not a compact). But I find with the cycling it is to dangerous to carry the camera for free of falling of the bike hence the reason I normally carry a compact around with me when I am riding.
In the past much of my photography has been kite sports related (another one of my hobbies) but since taking up mountain bike riding I have not really got the camera out. Hopefully as the better weather rolls in I will get the camera out.
