Also some of my roles involve blogging and after coming up with coherent, well-argued, typo-free blog posts on varied topics in the workplace the last thing I want to do is come home and blog some more.
It has, however, been a warm and clement November which has meant that my Sunday routine has involved watching a cyclocross race (usually a Superprestige or World Cup) from Europe online and then going for a ride on my road bike.
After several years away from the road bike it is strange and somewhat awkward to spend hours in the saddle again. I find that both leg speed (ie, cadence) and overall speed is lacking on the bike but there's no doubt that the longer road climbs in the area offer a chance to gain strength and fitness that will carry over to nordic skiing and next year's riding season.
