The mind is willing but the knees are weak

September 27, 2010 | 12:42 pm is mainly about diabetes and cycling, but other things get in the way from time to time. Some good, some not so.

I got into road cycling last summer and, as a result, have done less running this year than I can ever remember. I’ve always run but never very far and never for the sake of running. It was always either training for something else or for Mutley!


Having a dog gets you out when you can’t be bothered. But at the minute, I’m feeling very motivated about exercise generally. And if I can’t get on my bike, I still want to sweat a bit. So I went for a run early this morning, which of course Mutley was very happy about.

When I got back though, I think my body was reminding me that the bike is good. I hope to still be exercising when I’m old & grey, but I might be doing it with new knees!!!

A couple of days in a row again, and I’m sure I’ll be fine. But it never ceases to amaze me how out of shape you get for one type of exercise, when doing another.
