sandwiched between meetings
My 40 miles a week cycling plan took a nosedive this week because of being hotelled away in Cardiff and then briefly via home and back to Bristol on Friday. By Friday I'd done all of 8.5 miles. In truth I am well ahead of my 'average miles', with the previous three weeks being about 435 miles, so strictly speaking I'm still ahead of plan.
Then a good result on Friday was the last meeting of the week set as a conference call by phone, which my colleague and I took from my house.
There was a good sense of accomplishment as we finished and I commented that I didn't even need to go back home. In the heat of meetings I'd sort of forgotten I'd already driven to Bristol and back that day and we'd even eaten sandwiches in the car in a motorway services on the M4.
But the good result was I now had an early finish and could click up another 20 or so miles leaving about a dozen for Saturday.
