Out at 5am this morning for a couple of hours on the road bike before breakfast. There was a hard frost so I avoided the minor roads and the road through Affetside that’s always got a bloody stream running across it – the one that had me on my arse more than once last winter.

It was an enjoyable ride, clear sky, no wind but I’m starting to really look forward to the time when I can regularly attack the climbs and get the heart rate up stupidly high, even though when I do I’ll probably start to ignore the sky, the scenery and the weather. Well maybe not the weather. 

I’m definately burning fat well though, cos er…I appear to be losing weight again. Gah. I also think I twanged something in my leg in the gym at work yesterday. Gnnnn.
