Been a good while since I was on here as well as on my uni. Just wanted to have a rant and see how many other are/were in the same situatiuon as myself.
I find that life: work, kids, kids social activities, money and sleep (or lack of), necesarry DIY maintenance seem to keep getting in the way. I’ll have a few weeks were I get to practice/learn, maybe 3 to 4 hours a week so not many but then something will crop up and put a stop to it all just as I seem to be making some progress. I can’t yet ride up/down inclines and my street and the next few are all like this, so I cant just pop outsite of the house, I have to walk half a mile or so to get somewhere flat. It’s not far but it eats into the little half hour windows of opportunity that arrise from time to time.
Im still at the very early stages (ride in straight line and corner but without much control) and each time I make progress it really pushes me to get out more but then something happens which will stop me and it goes on the back burner for a while. When I return it feels like I’m starting all over again.
This frustration at wanting to go out but not being able to seems to make it harder to actualy make time.
I started going to a club which was great. Alas something else cropped up on the same evening which means I know can’t attend
If I could make a little mor progress then I would ride on my work lunch break but I’m not quite there yet and as fairly shy I wont risk it with 100+ students to watch me.
Reading what I’ve written seems like I’m just making excuses, but it genuinely seems so hard to find time.
Ah well, rant over.
Anyone else been like this?
