    Thanks everyone for your encouragement.

I feel much better than I did. My fitness is mostly measured by how well I'm riding my bike and at the moment I feel strong, fast (for me) and like no challenge would be too much.

I do however have a history of depression and it comes back to bug me on a regular basis. Cycling always lifts my mood for a while. Sometimes it's only the thought of the 16 mile commute to work on my bike that gets me out of bed.

My weight varies by +- 5 lb depending on my glycogen store levels and hydration but it is the trend over time that counts.

Here's to keeping on keeping on and best wishes to you all :)

Shropshire Highland Challenge 2013

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Shropshire Highland Challenge 2013.
Last weekend rode a fantastic 65 miles including 6600 feet of climbing in the beautiful Shropshire hills. A brilliant day with some challenging climbs. No problems but would like to be at goal weight to keep up with my mate up the hills. Already able to make him strain on the flats and descents and demolish him in the sprints, lol.
I love my bike !

And here's a cat...

    lol. Cheers Bill. No command is necessary. Sprinting when you're almost at the end of your resources on the bike, and you manage to squeeze out more, is one of the best feelings in the world... ever! :)

Warm and sunny with a risk of muscle strain...

Longer and faster walk to the shops resulting in a slightly sore inner left thigh emoticon
Back on the bike tomorrow thankfully. No pain there.

    Cheers, Bill.
Just reminds me that being fast on a bike doesn't automatically make you a fast walker/runner... Two different specialties.
There's a saying among my peers that cyclists make s*** runners. At the moment I'm a case in point :) emoticon
