and WHAT a week it has been too !
The 4 day weekend was broken only by my attempt at a Biggest Loser Challenge, While thinking about that weekend, just how AMAZING was Cancellara in the Tour of Fladers ? (Pic Below)
Anyways onto the important stuff….ME 😀
In the past few weeks I have been slowly upping my mileage until passing 100 miles (in a week) last week. This week feeling fully rested I exploded out of the blocks with a bang…….Cycling further and faster every day, feeling stronger and stronger and not once finding the going tough….Remarkable considering I have cycled over 90 miles in just 4 days.
So here are the stats for 4 days worth of cycling to work:
Distance: 91.82 mi
Ave Speed: 14.1 mph
Max Speed: 33.2 mph (Garmin Connect says 77.9 Mph, Took me a while to find the correct figure)
Ave Heart Rate: 145 bpm
Ave Distance/Day: 22.87 mi
Quite happy considering that the minimum I needed to do this week was 48 miles.
and why do I say a Marathon week in the title ? because today I cycled a total of 26.61 Miles…….A MARATHON !!!!!! (well actually thats more than a Marathon but hey, I’ll take it)
I still have time to pass 100 miles again before the start of next week……Maybe it will be attempt 2 of the biggest loser challenge that pushes me over the 100 miles? who knows ? for now I need a well earned rest.
OHHH as a quick additional point, I was looking at Garmin connect and my average speed over a month has gone up 3 Mph (Figures for March) since Oct last year and my Cadence is up from an average of 63 rpm to 79 rpm (over a month)
