I hang my head in shame (without hunching my shoulders up to my ears - just in case my teacher's reading this). It came after we had savasana and I was all chuffed because someone started to snore and I didn't laugh, or snigger when the girls behind me did. Then when we did the 'Omn' at the end someone was completely out of tune and I lost it. I mean I really lost it, and then people behind me stated laughing, and then the teacher noticed. Then on Wednesday we were halfway through savasana at the end and I had my eyes shut and it sounded like someone had jumped on asthmatic bag pipes. And then we were sang to in Sanskrit. I didn't laugh. I would like to say however that my musical tastes exclude that particular kind of organ used.
We also have colds. Well, to clarify, I have a cold, the Gids has The Man Flu. We're both a tiny bit shaky and snottery and wheezy. His symptoms are always a little bid worse than mine because he is a man. And the bigger the man the more severe the symptoms so he doesn't complain, he just looks extremely sorry for himself.
But anyway. I can't remember when but the Etape Caledonia sign up should be rolling out shortly. Feels like waiting to be hung. In terms of what we've done this year, there hasn't been that many big cycling trips. We've not made Ullapool yet and time is running out for that and besides from cycling to and fro' on the Brommie for work, nothing else has been done.
At least I've done more than the Giddy Blonde. So far for the past two months he's ironed his shirt the night before, packed his bag for the morning, set the alarm early all with every intention of cycling in just to hit the snooze button before hitting a leisurely shower and getting the car in to work. I understand it's not a competition but I'm all in the chuffing smugness at the moment with my superior commitment to the velocipeding.
I'm going to start recording how long it takes to get me to work and back now. Just to see if there's any difference, if I'm improving on the Brompton. I'll be slower than on one of the bigger bikes, and having had a couple of windy days I'm finding the Brompton heavy on the road, so fun that will not be. I can't tell a difference in my fitness as such but I am finding by legs have got thicker - to the point they keep pulling my thighs keep pulling my trousers down - and I'm thinking that I'm going to start the turbo trainer again.
