AT LAST, today I got over my phobia of "but what if I fall off and look stupid" (because if I'm honest, that's the real reason I've been putting off cycling to work, not so much the "it's too hot/late/whatever") and took Whites to work with me. ^_^ PLUS we went for a semi-adventure (read: attempted short cut and ended up in I-have-no-idea-where-the-f-I-am) on the way home, so I ended up doing... maybe... 7 miles today? (2.6 each way to work and back, and maybe an extra mile or 2 when I got lost *cough* I MEAN, HAD AN ADVENTURE). Not much, sure, but bearing in mind I've ridden a bike maybe three or four times before in the last 15 years? HURRAH.
(Plus I have bragging rights over Whites; the hill just past Sainsbury's made me o_o and Whites was all "ha yeah bet you can't make it all the way up THAT in one go, fat-aft", AND I MADE IT, so ha.)
So I feel totally virtuous now. ^_^ YAY. NOW TO UNGO MY GOOD WORK AND EAT CHOCOLATE MINI WEETABIX
