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 →

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 →

Slower October

It's been a funny one. After my Epic Ride up the Dales I felt rather poorly which impacted in the old monthly mileage totals!  But this last week I have been trying to get back into Zwift as the weather (mainly wind) is turning and the dark nights have returned with the clocks going back....

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 →

Ticking over in July

Drum roll... 438 miles! A bit down on June but still a decent amount of miles to keep the clock ticking over! And as I have completed more miles that target I am now even further ahead of target: My previous highest annual cycling total was 2,255 miles. It looks that this will be surpassed...

Forgotten June

Had a great June, probably too busy cycling to write about it!  So this will be brief - normal service to be resumed at the end of July. Still not 100% health wise. I'm having the odd bouts of dizziness and phlegm but thankfully it isn't affecting my cycling. So June... 481 miles! My best... Continue Reading →
