When your motivation dips the routine you have built for yourself keeps you going until your motivation lifts back up again.
Are we getting closer?
Christmas and chill. With mud, running and mountain biking.
I need to change with the seasons.
We’re out and about again (carefully) and can do most of the things that we like doing. So why do I wish I could go to work?
I miss the sea so we’re going for an appropriately social distanced family ride just to see the sea. And smell the sea. If it smells sea-ey today.
Also, a little virtual reality stuff and thoughts.
Mountain biking locally every other day in a sunny spring is great.
The kids like to be stuck indoors during this lockdown, so it’s even harder getting them out than usual. Annabel loves her mountain bike though so maybe now is the time to start practising some trail skills?
Also, a meteor shower.
Like everyone else, we’re at home, indoors, for 23 out of 24 hours a day. But we can still run from home, cycle from home, and strength train at home to try to stay healthy, mentally and physically.
So what’s going on? What else can we do at home?
The holidays are over and it’s time to get back to teaching anatomy and embryology, and the daily routine. Yey? Here’s a bit of a “day in the life” of my first day back to work.
Not my new bike, but Annabel’s new bike. Finally she has grown big enough for a full size mountain bike and that’s what we wanted. Let’s go for a little, chilly test ride first.
