A combination of too much work and bouts of illness over the last month or two have put paid to any serious start to the training but I can sense things are starting to improve. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve managed to get in the odd commute (40 mile round trip) as well as getting back in to the gym for some cardio workouts. I’ve even made an appointment with Ryan at the gym (who’s a keen cyclist himself) to prepare a suitable training programme. So, the motivation is there and this can only be a good thing as the weather starts to get a lot colder. Met Office are even predicting some sleet and snow this week!
Aim this week is 1-2 long commutes, at least 3 sessions in the gym and a mountain bike thrash round Clumber Park trails.
