I had been invited to a birthday party yesterday. I didn’t go, as I can’t do parties any more ( it’s the height and volume thing – neither of which I cope with, plus a consciousness that people have to stop enjoying themselves to talk to me ..)
So instead I went out for a long push on my Trike.
I’ve had the tyres changed to a ‘ slicker ‘ variety that pump up far harder and blimey, what a difference that has made – it’s probably 60% faster, 50% easier to push ( at that higher speed ) and also I don’t get so easily stuck in places … very useful, that last factor.
Suddenly 7 miles was pretty easy.
Marathon next year, for sure.
