I made it!!!

College is about 4 miles from my house. Thats not very far: it takes maybe 20 minutes in the car: longer during rush hour. To cycle it on one level (literally) seems easy. But college is 4 miles away and uphill virtually all the way!

So today at 1025hrs I got on my little silver MTB and I peddled. And then I pushed. And then I peddled a bit more. And then I pushed for quite a long time.. And then I peddled: and 45 minutes later I made it into college. I was very red. You could have cooked vegetables in the sweat from my back (I am a lady, I am a lady!). But I made it!!!

I can't begin to tell you how chuffed I was. Endorphins rushed round my body and made me feel all alive! Very exciting!!!

And oh my is getting home easier!! Watch this space for progress (including if I can sit down tomorrow!)

Just wait 'til winter. You have the uniquely Downsian experience of horizontal rain to look forward to!
Heh heh!
Well done on the ride in!
