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 →

Phat Phuck

It's been a while, May in fact, since my last post and things have slipped.  We are still on track for most targets but I moved house in June and my progress slowed and that meant my weight went up. Sadly I'm now back up to 15 stone 13 pounds which is 223 lbs or... Continue Reading →

Forty February

Well I did say last month that I'd have a few days off for my birthday and I did! February was and easier month miles wise but I really think my biggest gains so far cycling wise have been made. I managed to eat quite a lot of this cake and as such the weight... 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 →

December Done (and 2020 Review)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Mileage went down in December unfortunately but it's always nice to have some time to relax rather than be flogging yourself every day on the bike. Thankfully I have already achieved my mileage goal so I could afford a bit of me time. I'm not really sure where... Continue Reading →

Swollen September

So September was pretty steady. I even had an easy final week but I suppose as the weather turns on October the real work starts now. Only 5 Zwift rides in September. I expect this to increase! As I type it is pouring down meaning the usual Saturday ride is off. We are nearly 1,000... Continue Reading →

3,000 For The Year… Done!

It gives me great pleasure to strike off my main target of the year! After 260 days I have officially recorded 3,020 miles on Strava. My previous annual best was 2,255 miles back in 2015 and I was hoping to build on this but but for some reason from that point my annual totals went... Continue Reading →

Virus-ridden March

So we started off with the best of intentions and then something a little bigger than cycling came along... COVID-19. I started off March quite well having a 56 mile week 1 total but then I got ill again. I managed to cycle through the last cold but this one knocked me for six and... Continue Reading →
