We have been back from our holiday over a week now. Since being home it has been easy getting back into a normal routine.
I have managed to go on a walk everyday this week but I haven’t been out on my bike though.
I really enjoyed my rides on holiday but since being back I can’t seem to get motivated. Matt asked me if I wanted a bike ride – I did want to go but I just couldn’t be bothered. I had that attitude that I couldn’t be bothered to do anything. I get that sometimes when I am bored.
Matt however got his assertive head on and said “get changed we are going on a ride”. I am glad he did as I think I would have sat around and done nothing all day otherwise.
I thought I might just go around the block a few times. But while we were out Matt kept asking if I wanted to go further. As we had gone to the trouble of getting changed and out there I agreed to go further and I’m so glad we did.
It’s lovely cycling in the countryside because you get to appreciate the scenery more than when you drive around the lanes. England is really lovely when the sun is shining. The views can be really amazing. However this was my view!
I felt by the time I got back that I’d had a descent ride. I found it quite a lot easier than I normally do and I didn’t seem to get as tired either. I think it must be because it wasn’t as hot as on holiday and I felt like I had more energy.
I ended up really enjoying my day. I could have sat around and done nothing all day like I wanted to. But I feel I have made good use of my day and I have really accomplished something.
I think the moral of the story is that if you don’t feel like doing something but you end up doing it the rewards are so much greater!
