My horoscope on Friday in our local paper read: "You can't work towards your goals if you're exhausted. It's time to make a more realistic schedule for yourself. By doing so you'll find your strength returns and progress will be made."
So obviously I took serious stock of this (ignoring the fact that it could apply to anyone, not just Geminis) and cycled to work today. Only in the afternoon, so that was 1.5 miles there and 1.5 miles home. The girls at work were agog when I turned up in my hi-viz jacket and cycling helmet after lunch - "You cycled....????"
I do have a couple of questions:
Firstly, who changed my saddle for a narrower one with no padding, hm??
Secondly, who put restrictor valves in my lungs?
Thirdly, is it normal to feel sick after cycling 1.5 miles?
I knew I would be unfit but that was the first exercise other than walking or stretching that I'd done in almost 9 months, and it hit home just HOW unfit I am. It's quite scary. I didn't exactly bust a gut, but I didn't dawdle either.
So, I won't be cycling to work every day! But once or twice a week and building it up has got to be a good step in the right direction.
Other than that, I am rethinking my schedule and might try and wangle myself an extra half hour in bed....
