So wound up, literally, was I by that Press Statement from the Science Media Center, which Jean Harrison posted on CoCure this morning , that I simply had to do something to contain myself....
So I got out my bike.
While I was standing on the street getting myself sorted out : IPod, helmet, goves, glasses, a woosh of lycra sped past: a multicoloured swarm of cyclists - and dissapeared.
Anyway I jumped on and set off peddling furiously : "PNAS...Sceince Media Centre ..grrr...."
The woosh of lycra appeared on the horizon....
"Grrr...Science Media Centre,,,such a blatant outrage.........!
Suddenly the other cyclists were just ahead of me , cycling up what passes for a steep hill here in Norfolk.
I was in the centre of them, head down, fuming, and then way out in front
I had caught up and passed the woosh, all less than half my age,,,,,, on a hill !!!
Off I sped like a dart and came back eventually , still peddling furiously.
I will never know if I set a world record for speed this morning or not !!!! (I think it's just possible ...)
Wessely's sure helping to keep me fit....!!
