I am principally a runner, but currently not allowed as have shin splints
Therefore trying to find other things to fend off the boredom and insanity.
I've been doing a fair bit of swimming, and thought I'd dust sown the old bike and do a bit of cycling.....
but I'm SO rubbish. I (obviously mistakenly) thought that with a decent level of basic fitness and endurance that I'd be a bit better than I am, but I am incredibly slow - not much faster than running to be honest. I'm constantly being passed by other cyclists (even the fat unfit-looking ones on rusty old bikes).
OK some of it might be the bike - MTB etc, but I don't think I can blame it all on that.
Is there anyone else out there who started out really slow and is now half decent, or should I give up right now??!
