Training Diary – Week 11

Had some very kind comments after my last blog post which I really appreciated. It's nice that people care but also nice that they actually read this crap! Thanks to those who did. Not overly worrying about sessions this week, just trying to enjoy riding. Tuesday's Zwift race felt like a real chore so I skipped... Continue Reading →

Training Diary – Week 10

Real Talk 15 weeks until the Yorkshire Beast and my training progress is abysmal. I have remained the same weight and despite my fitness improving it isn't at any level that I hoped it would be. I could fill this with excuses but the last weeks have been dire on my part. Something needs to... Continue Reading →

Training Diary – Week 9

So last week was crazy but hoping going forward I can get back into the training routine but with a little less pressure from a strict professional training plan.

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.
