It’s been a busy week. Sorry I have neglected my blog slightly recently. I have finally got broadband installed at home so I hope it will be easier to keep you up-to-date now.
On Sunday I set off from home with one goal in mind! To surpass 1000 miles on my speedometer. I have done a little more actual miles as there were times when it wasn’t plugged in or I forgot it. But I cycled out the house with 30 miles to do. I didn’t really know where I was going, in fact I even got lost but I just ploughed on the same road and eventually found something recognisable. I set myself the little challenge of seeing how close to 1000 miles I could get too.
I cycled through sun and rain, a previous storm had also meant the road surface was very gravelly. My route took me out to Tunbridge wells, to Pembury, Capel, East Peckham and back through Paddock wood, Rams Hill and Brenchley to home. I came in at 998.9 miles Doh!! So I did a loop of the village green which got me up to 1000.5
Then on Tuesday I went out after work with 2 of my cousins, they had completed the London Triathalon at the weekend, so I pushed hard at times to keep with them. But pleased with my performance. Another 12 miles done.
This weekend is my last weekend of heavy training. So all being well with the weather I will do my biggest weekend ever! Then I slow it down in preparation for the Pedal To Paris!!!!
