Another day, another crash at the fucking Mayfield junction. On my way to Uni when a little white van pulls in beside the bike lane just ahead of me and the door opens. I stop because the guy wasn’t looking and I was worried he might just walk out onto the bike lane, and suddenly someone cycles straight into my back and she goes flying off her bike.
I check she’s ok and luckily she’s very understanding, she said something along the lines of “I would have done the same if I were you” so not exactly sure why she didn’t stop in time. Guy in the van started blaming me but nothing and no-one was broken so just cycled away with him saying “Yeah but it doesn’t open all the way across the bike lane”. 99% sure I was in the right here but I suppose I always would.
Absolutely shit feels all day today. Woke up the most tired and fatigued I reckon Ive ever been, no energy for anything and eating breakfast was a chore. Cold and shivery in warm rooms today and the cough has come back with a severe vengeance. I reckon that Sunday was way too long and given I’m still not used to that kind of thing I just totally and utterly bonked in the extreme. And now have no energy. Time to sleep and eat until I feel better. Could not even bring myself to do anything else today, got home and straight to bed.
