While everyone's clambering to buy petrol before it dries up...I feel less pressured as I cycle past on my short journey to work.
The journey's about two miles. I arrive at work with a refreshing, but slightly tired feeling. I used to cycle to 11 miles to work when I was at EMAP. It involved a long stretch of Fenland up against strong winds. It felt like the gods where against me. Yet I arrived at my destination full of energy.
So now am I unfit, unhealthy or just older? I'm not sure, but the ride is certainly more tranquil and it's my only guaranteed fitness program so I'm not complaining.
Now where's my morning snack...
