This morning I took the first step in the long road to getting my body into a reasonable state of health. I got up at 5am and went for a ride on my bike, down along the beach front. I did just under 9km and was feeling pretty knackered doing the last 2km back home. Still, considering I haven’t ridden since last summer, and then only once or twice, it wasn’t too bad. Now I just need to keep it up, and cut back on my food intake and my weight should slowly start dropping towards what it should be, but that is a long, long way off.
