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 →

Training Diary – Week 1

Weight: 234 lbs FTP: 272 Mileage: 0 Monday 3rd JanuarySo it begins. I'm not sure what to expect but the week hasn't stated off great as I have some kind of head cold / hangover from Christmas which I'm struggling to shake off. I've not felt great over the whole festive period but hoping that... 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 →

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 →

August

Biggest month yet! 501 miles! Very happy with that. Not sure why I did so much but I enjoyed it. Another bonus is being so far ahead of pace. This translates to a predicted year end of nearly 5,000 miles. To get anywhere near to that would be amazing. I'll have to keep an eye... Continue Reading →

MayAsWell

Quite happy with May. I've this last week started to feel normal again but I'm getting fatter, I know I am, I'm eating chocolate like it's going out of fashion as I've finally given up vaping. I gave up on the 18th May as my chest was getting quite bad and it seemed very silly... Continue Reading →

April… Cool

April is a mixed but kinda successful bag. The illness that's been dragging on didn't want to shift so I finally called the doctor. Turns out I've had some kind of virus that ended up as a chest infection. Anyway, a course of antibiotics a couple of weeks into April sorted me right out and... Continue Reading →
