A bit of this and a bit of that.

Kind of don't know where to begin. Leaving it so long between posts has me forgetting what it is I have actually been up to. I haven't lost my zest for writing it's just I have been finding it hard to actually sit and write. And then when I finally do find the time and the right headspace I find myself in this very predicament - a fumbling fool. 

Firstly I think I should say that The Cycling Cerebellums Organisation is going so well it is hard for me to contain my excitement. We got our Team Kit and I have to say it is absolutely AWESOME. Check it out.
How cool do we all look. I think I said it about a hundred times out on our first training ride last Saturday. Which might I also add was just about the most fun I had had in ages. I had been doubting myself for quite a while and the closer to the training ride we got the more nervous I became. But I didn't have anything to worry about. Everyone's words of encouragement got me through that 97km ride and at times we were absolutely smokin' it. I felt so fast. Haven't felt that fast in ages or every really - what a great feeling. Riding in a pack sure does help alot. It also helps riding with a great group of people - the time just flew by and before I knew it we were back at the Coffee Club enjoying breakfast.

I noticed that everywhere we cycled we got stared at. Pretty awesome feeling. 

I have also decided that I need to make massage my new best friend. My back has been starting to feel weird again and I think it's because of tight muscles. So, massage every Thursday is on the agenda to keep it all soft and supple - thanks Kristen - you have hands of gold. 

I have also begun using my foam roller everyday and getting into my glutes, quads, hammies and calf muscles  in order to stop them from stiffening up again as well as incorporating Yoga on a Monday night into my FEEL GOOD ABOUT ME regime.

And I am all about keeping me feeling good. So as of today I am going to make a solemn vow to myself to make my blog a part of my life again on a regular basis. Writing is cathartic for me and I HAVE felt lost not doing it as often as I used to. 

Your hard work will be rewarded.
