Well having smashed January I had a rather large blip in February. it would appear returning back to alcohol, holidays and illness aren’t good for training and weight loss!
The only good thing about February was my FTP increase 245 watts.
As we can see here I have only added 109 miles to this years total. Not good. And why was this you ask?
February started off with a cold which kind of knocked me for six. It took me about 10 days to get over it and then a week later I was off to Germany on a lads trip. This then made me feel like shit for a whole week. So that’s over half of the month gone.
I’m now, as of the 2nd March, 32 miles behind pace. And I still feel shitty. Bummer.
- Mileage – 476 down, 2,524 to go. Thanks to my great January I’m not too far behind pace.
- Weights – Now 17st 2.6lbs – gained 1.9 lbs but that’s understandable with the lack of activity. Not the end of the world.
- Alcohol – Had a few big sessions but not drinking during the week. Need to reduce it down at weekends to avoid it interfering with training.
So February was a bit of a let down. But now is the time to go again, not dwell on failure. March needs to be a good one.
