hi all,
I have signed up for a bike ride of only 7km on sunday. I might be biting off more than i can chew tho, I kow 7 km is practically nothing on a bike but it's cross country so will be tough.
I really want to do it as it's as much about pushing through the anxiety of doing such a public event as it is the pain.
Today i cycled aout 8 miles on the road, i was tired and sore but ok. I have founf exercising every other day at the moment works.
I had to take a benzodiazapam to dull the pain when i went to work. Obviuosly i can't take one of those on race day. I'm excited and nervous but really want to do it......i hope i'ii be ok.
The fogs really bad still and i keep dropping things, maybe i'm nuts to be doing it, what do ye think?
There's torrential rain here(ireland) all the time lately, i could be setting myself up for failure, or just trying to give myself an excuse not to take part nono .
 
Take the pain and do it, i'm waffling and thinking on line here. smilewinkgrin   Or perhaps just torturing myself.

Boo, the only way you set yourself up for failure is if you don't even try!  You just might really surprise yourself!  You probably will be quite sore afterwards but you will get over that and still have wonderful memories...even if you can't finish!

yeah, i've an ice pack on the shoulder as we speak and my husband is packing the jeep. It should be actually a real laugh as there's buckets of rain falling. I've also made arrangements to come home via the pool and take a dip afterwards. It's all or nothing guys.......It's just nerves getting to me....
