I can't quite believe spring has gone so quickly. When I started on C25k, the snowdrops were just beginning to come into flower, and as I have run, I have seen them come and go, the daffodils followed, and now the meadows around here full of flowers of varying hue and style. Getting in touch with the changing of seasons has been a delightful side effect of getting involved in running.
A few weeks ago, having heard that I was looking to become more active in my lifestyle, a friend of mine who is a keen cyclist, invited me out for an "easy" ride. It was right at the limit of what I could manage, but it was like a lot of the runs in this program: I realised that with the right training program I could definitely make progress and improve my performance. Since then, I've gone for a couple more long rides in the countryside (but with fewer hills), and rather enjoyed it.
What's great about the forum here is that it's centred around the newcomer to the activity, and people are very much focussed on helping people new to the activity to learn to work better, and answer all those little questions that would be trivial to people more experienced, but we all need to get answers to in the beginning. Does anyone here know of a place on the internet with a similar sort of community as we have here, but focussed on cycling?
