After a couple of really shameful months I have finally managed to achieve a half decent mileage.
With the weather improving in mid Feb and that first [for a while] enjoyable ride on the 19th, things started to improve. The subsequent ride was again an enjoyable one. The one after that was OK - not great, but not too painful either. The following one was thankfully another enjoyable one; it was pretty tough with some mighty winds but non-the-less I quite enjoyed it.
Then yesterday I pulled another good ride out of the bag with a pretty decent mileage; taking a jaunt over to the seaside town of Mousehole. The weather was lovely, in fact it was so fine that the 3/4 length tights came out instead of the winter tights. We sat on the sandy beach in Mousehole in the sunshine, sharing a veg pasty before riding home. It was so warm that shockingly I had to remove some layers on the way back as I started overheating. Yay! Hopefully this means Spring is here and that I can get back out on my bike more.
Anyway, here's the important bit. My monthly total was a respectable 112.5 miles. All of which were done on my winter bike outside - with no turbo sessions needed.
I start March feeling positive again, so watch this space.
