on the seventh day you shall rest

Well not to much rest but certainly give my knee a rest, I tweaked a muscle in the back of my knee during last weeks ride and yesterday I felt in pulling after about 6 miles. Well this morning I felt it as I tried to get out of bed. After hobbling downstairs I decided that riding today was not a good idea especially as I have a ride to do next week (more later).

So the day was spent cleaning and prepping the Whyte ready for next weekend oh and guess what I found when I got the bike out the shed this morning, another flat front tyre!! It was a very small leak which took several attempts to find, checked the tyre but did not find anything poking through. Think it might be time to invest in some of those self sealing slime filled inner tubes like these. I have also added a reminder to the calendar to give the bike a once over Friday night as I don’t want another Saturday morning like yesterday again in a hurry.

The ride I am doing is an easy ride (allegedly) on the Ridgeway in Swindon or starting at Burberry Castle to be exact. It is being organised by MBS (mountain biking in Swindon), more details can be found here. So that why I decided not to ride this morning to rest my knee ready for next weekend.

As well as bike prepping this morning I have been PC building for a friend of ours this afternoon. She needed a PC for her daughter as there were nightly confrontation in her house over who was going to use the PC (Facebook Vs homework). So out of the old dead boxes I had lying around I have managed to build another PC for her so at least there will be some piece in there house hold.

It is weigh in night tomorrow, it has been reasonable week so far, so I am hopeful. Unfortunately I have the dentist as well tomorrow for a bit of root canal work, should be interesting as I don’t do injections………………………….
