After a week of thinking about it I decided to just go for it and signed up last Saturday morning. My event pack arrived mid week, which has made it feel real!
So 1 week into properly thinking about my rides and the training I need to do, I’m feeling pretty happy.
I’ve decided in general, Sunday mornings will be my long bike ride day. Last week I did 15 miles and actually felt great afterwards. I even managed a day at Wells after, playing in the woods and on the beach!
I’ve then increased my mid week ride to 2 rides! And doubled the distance from 4 miles to 8 miles! Tuesday was my toughest day, after a really long day in London for work on Monday, I was physically tired. I very nearly turned left and opted for the 4 mile route but I knew that was a slippery slope to letting my excuses win, and couldn’t cave in that easily in week 1!!
