I went cycling with Richie after work; it was supposed to be 60-70km at a mod-hard pace. Truth was we did 87km and at times I wished I was alone – the pace was too high for me and I crossed my no-go threshold many times in the first hour. I believe I kept my annoyance and frustration to myself… there was no reason to complain because I wasn’t fast enough.
The ride is now done and I will be stronger because of it. I have to remember it’s only my first year back and:
People overestimate what they can achieve in the short term and greatly under estimate what they can achieve in the long term.
Let’s stay in it for the long term!
