So with the ice and the wind and the incessant rain, I’ve not been on the bike since just after Christmas. So, after seeing the weather for the rest of the week (light intermittent showers.) I’m getting back on the bike tomorrow.
This leaves me one day a week when I’ll still be getting the train, a Monday, as I’ve got a karate class to go to straight from work, but other than that, it’s all go for the bike again.
On Friday I’ve got a day off, and I’m planning on going swimming in the morning. The only time I get to swim is when we go on holiday. When we first got married, we lived near Govanhill baths, a beautiful old Victorian pool, which the council in it’s infinite wisdom, shit down. This resulted in protests, sit-ins and campaigns – click on the link – and no swimming pool. Now, I’m near (but not as near) Bellahouston sports centre, and you can take out a “swim only” membership, which I’d only have to use once a week to break even on, which sounds ideal. So, with that in mind I’m going for a swim on Friday morning, to check out the pool, and see if it’s worth my getting a membership.
A couple of months on the bike, and the train fare I’ve saved would pay for the swimming, so it’s a real possibility.
