I am weak........

....today i went on a nice easy 12 mile (and a bit) ride to just trickle along with my training. Alas, the end of my ride stops bang opposite the best pub in the area. I just couldn't resist it. Two pints of Palmers of Bridport Bitter (and a packet of Nobby's Nuts) later and I am feeling completely ashamed of myself. I am two weeks into this new regime of mine - that's two weeks without a pint - what have I done?

    it was only 2 pints mate and you were in your 'golden hour' so dont worry about it at all. you deserve a little treat every now and then, and if its straight after training your body will just burn it up.

    at the end of the day were normal humans not olympians who cant afford even the slightest slip in there regime. i thought the pub was an important part of mountain biking anyway!!
  • Thanks for that Punctureboy, that's just what I needed to hear....although I had to "google" Golden Hour :shock:
    You're right of course, it was only 2 pints and it will be a while (working nights makes it so much easier to abstain) before temptation will be put in front of me. I am trying to do something every day - be it gym, swimming or, of course, cycling. So far so good.

    He's absolutely right. Life without the odd pint or two (or whatever one's vice is) is a life not worth living.
