Closing Out May

Warning Geek Out time!!

Right… I’ve reset my computer several times for different rides and got a lot of MTB rides and rides on the Kuota to add up so give me a minutes,,

824 + 49 +10….. carry the 1….

Oh right,

Assuming that I wasn’t totally wrong in my closing out April post then i’ve done this year is about:

1070miles since Feb – Arrival of the Langster time.

And about 400 for May.

Done my 1st Duathlon,

Ridden 1st ride with the sheffield Urban extremist MTB club on Sunday… which was fun.

Ridden my 1st full Carbon Road bike…

Done my 1st 50 mile ride…. well nearly.

May has been a month of 1st’s.

Happy riding all.


Hard week in the saddle,

I think it’s because I’ve seen significant improvement in my strength and fitness on the Langster that I feel like I’m training for something, but I’m not, should I?

Yesterdays ride to and from college was just as fast as the week before but the return journey home was 2miles longer than the week before!

Oh and I have some stats [geek out time]

  • Days – 7
  • Time – 7 hours 33 minutes
  • Distance: 102.29 miles
  • Average speed 13.5mph
  • Max 40.1

My legs were feeling very heavy at the end of yesterday but the ride home in particular did feel loads better than the week before I was faster up the hills by about 1mph and recovering much quicker I’m hoping this is due to an increased fitness.

I am starting to see a much more rapid decease in the fat stomach area and if I can manage to get some runs in / gym this week I’ll be doing well.

Today’s duties have been exchanged with the wife she’s in the saddle and I’m on the school run with the rest of the cagers! I think a day out of the saddle will do me good as up until a few days ago I’ve been neglecting my rear and developed a saddle sore, it feel loads better than it did a few days ago thanks the assoss chamoix cream and regular applications of sudacreme seem to be doing the trick! Not nice!

But it’s good to share. Later Y’all.
