It was going so well…

It's a funny old game... Shit, wrong sport. The World Cup has gone to my head! Look at the size of me in that photo. I'm embarrassed. It was a candid shot taken by my mate's son, Seth. It really made me think about how fat I have become after losing a fair bit last... Continue Reading →

Week 23 & 24 – Back At It!

Sunday 12th June 16 days since riding so it was time to see if the groin had improved, especially with the beautiful weather! Went out for a 22 mile flat loop and it felt ok. Muscles aching everywhere and I think I felt the twinge again but no where near as bad as before. As... Continue Reading →

Week 16 – Climbs

I thought that after an enjoyable few days on the bike last week it is maybe time to stop messing about and try and get fit for the Lincoln sportive. The main aim going forward it to be hitting over 100 miles a week and making sure the fitness graph is going in the... Continue Reading →

Week 15 – Cinder Track

Had a dodgy old start to the week which involved trying to decide if I had Covid or a cold or heyfever. You have to love this time of year when all the dirty pollens come out and infect our airways with irritants! Turns out I had heyfever. This coupled with a very busy few... Continue Reading →

Week 14…

So we are officially not a training diary. Just a diary of sorts. Maybe we'll see some movement towards my goals as I do really plan on upping the miles and elevation. So maybe this is an accountability blog? Tuesday 5th April Zwift Racing League is back!!! Road to Ruins. An 18.7 mile race with... Continue Reading →
