Last night saw the return of something to my life which has been missing for almost a year. Exercise on a bike.
I felt like my legs couldn’t turn the pedal, power was nowhere near what I used to be able to put out and I couldn’t manage very long at all. You can see my sorrowful attempt of a ride here.
There’s a few reasons why I’ve been off the bike; work, raising a young family (a two year old and a one month old), moving home, laziness… I could go on but this would bore you to tears.
However, this week I signed up to the UCI World Championships Sportive. 100 glorious miles through the Yorkshire countryside, following some of the route which the World Championships will take place. Magic.
So what better time to start getting back to some form of fitness than six months before the big event!
I’ve done century rides before, Sportive’s also, but never with trying to fit in training around family time!
So follow on as I go through the training, riding and equipment which is going to get me there.
Oh and to add to the story, I’m dragging my wife along for the 100mile ride… the poor mite only gave birth last month, has never ridden a sportive before but those that train together, right?!
