I have just completed day 7 - a 5k bike ride. The bike had so many cobwebs on it and I wasn't sure the tyres hadn't perished but no all seemed fine. Hubby kindly pumped up the tyres before he jetted off to warmer climes, so felt it was only fair to give it a bash. High vis jacket and daughters helmet on I sneaked out of the garage hoping not to be noticed but unfortunately the neighbours were out packing their car for a weekend away. An embarrassed smile, quick good morning and off I went. Then I noticed the gears - I'd forgotten how these worked (in fact not sure I ever did know), in the end I managed a fairly flat 5k route round the village, without coming off the bike. Have since googled about the gears and now understand (i was almost doing it right anyway).
Physically - I am more achy, mainly my bottom, but other than that feel fine
Mentally - Still enthusiastic but think really need to mix up the exercise to keep motivated.
Going to jump on the scales tomorrow and see if it's done anything for my weight
