What doesn't kill us

Cycling to uni yesterday felt easier. That big hill didn't beat me this time. In fact, I didn't even hit bottom gear.

This could mean 2 things:

1. I'm getting stronger. Soon these hills will be easy.

2. My bag was lighter than normal and the wind was behind me.

I'm thinking it's probably more of number 2 than number 1, although that might come into it a little too!

Today I wimped. It was windy, looked like rain, and I have to bring my laptop home tonight. Still, I made it into work for 8.40 (good trains), and I've brought chocolate refrigerator cake for my project team. I need to test how close to Waitrose Tiffin it is before I try to bribe my way to a good appraisal in March!
