Week 19 – Highs and Lows

Well some good news to start the week with! After a week of watching what I eat and cutting back on the beer I weighed in at 232 lbs which is a 5 lb loss! Excellent! Now I know some of this will be my body adjusting to my new diet and probably some fluids... Continue Reading →

Week 18 – Up Redmire!

Weighed myself this week and it was not good!!! 237 pounds which means I have gained 2 STONE in a year. That's everything I lost. Action needs to be taken so I have my starting point and will be not only upping the mileage but reducing beer and food. Tuesday 3rd May My final Zwift... Continue Reading →

Week 17 – The Long One

Only two active days this week but I made them count. Tuesday 26th April Yes, Zwift Racing League. A flat course for sprinters with a kicker at the end of the climbers. It was tough. Managed to finish 30th and come 7th in one of the sprints. Wasn't really happy with that but again it... 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 intervals.icu fitness graph is going in the... 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 →

Training Diary – Week 4

Weight: 229 lbs FTP: 272 Mileage: 307 Monday 24th January Rest day but weigh day. Having not watched what I eat since Wednesday last week I was worried. I tentatively stepped on the scales and to my delight I had remained at 229 lbs. Sweet. Mental health restored and no weight gain. This might be... Continue Reading →

Training Diary – Week 3

Weight: 229 lbs FTP: 272 Mileage: 200 Monday 17th January No weight loss this week which was very disappointing as I've tried my best to stick to 1,800 calories. Maybe it won't be as easy to shift as last January. Legs feel great this morning and looking forward to a chilled day with a few... Continue Reading →

Training Diary – Week 2

Weight: 229 lbs FTP: 272 Mileage: 98 Monday 10th January Rest day today! Did my hip flexor stretches and just tried to watch what I ate. Whilst waiting for new saddle for Wattbike I bought some more chamois cream as I'm going through it at a rate of knots! Also bought some new recovery drink... Continue Reading →

January 2021

Happy New Year! 2020 was pretty successful for me cycling wise. I managed to use the pandemic and lockdown to my advantage by ploughing the spare time it gave me into cycling, namely Zwifting. I wanted to go into 2021 with the same mindset - we will never get this lockdown time again - so... Continue Reading →

First Cat C Win

Well it was only a Time Trial! But surely the race against the clock is the purest of all races? Either way I don't care, I got myself a gold cup tonight in the British Cycling Time Trial Series. I surprised myself on 29th October when I entered the TT series and came 2nd.  I... Continue Reading →
