So, here's the basic plan:
- Aim for at least 150 miles per week. I can do this mainly through upping the commuting miles. I live 20 miles from work and do cycle to and from work when I can but this has dropped off this year.
- Get in longer rides wherever possible. Perhaps ride the odd 200k Audax. Ride to and from my Dad's (about 100 mile round trip).
- Go to the gym regularly.
- Get a bit trimmer. I'm 13.5 stone and 5' 11". Could do with losing 20lb!!! Everyone says that the key to making the cycling more enjoyable on a LEJOG is to not carry too much weight on the bike. I guess that includes the engine too!
- Blog the training and encourage humiliating comments if I'm not doing what I should be doing.
I'll, er, start tomorrow.
