Not on

So I didn't get to go to the bike riding lessons as the weather just didnt want to behave. I was a little disappointed as I really want to understand my bike and become best friends with it rather than acquaintances. So I instead went to my usual bootcamp which I was planning on just moving forward a day so I could fit the bike session in. This bootcamp has become my usual routine since before October 2009. It's not something I am willing to compromise on. Sure there are days where things just crop up or where all the appointments in the world just happen to coincide on the same week, but when that happens I make sure that I make up for it one way or another. That may mean having to change my routine slightly for the week. But I make sure I stick to it.
I still havent conquered the goal of getting out onto the road to ride. This will happen, I am more than 100% sure. This is something else I am not willing to compromise on. Once I say I want to do something, I become a bit like a "dog with a bone",- driven. The one thing I have realised along this journey is that I can do anything. Sure they may not resemble some olympic athletes achievements but they are achievements nonetheless. They are my achievements.
I love being me, life is good. What more can I ask for?

Your hard work will be rewarded.
