Yet another quality week on the bike, where I pushed further than I thought even I could, not distance wise, but effort.
I am still in some serious pain following the accident in July, I have good weeks and bad weeks, this started off a bad week to be honest,
The first couple of days I did the minimum number of miles just to “Get it done” by midweek I was starting to feel “Less Bad” and stretched my legs a little.
Thursday I did a hill I had never done before, No idea what it’s called but for locals it’s the one that goes from Denton to Bredbury Tip 🙂
During Wednesday I had a conversation with someone who said “Cycling is only half as efficient as other sports for weight loss” RED RAG to a bull time 🙂
IMHO It’s only half as efficient if you put Half the effort IN .
I set about proving him wrong and after my commute on Thursday I think I had the proof he was wrong and I was right, this was me and my shirt after 15 miles 🙂
On Thursday morning the roads were dry and the sun was out (But it was cold) sooooo Jim ? Am I right ? 🙂
On Friday I had a nice ride in and then finished at lunch time, most people would have gone home and relaxed , not me, I agreed to meet a reporter for a story in a local paper in the center of Manchester and off I went, by the time I got home I had done 30 miles for the day, I was shattered, but with a mile to go I got possessed and I just started to give it hell, by the time I got home I was almost screaming I was putting that much effort into it, I sat on the wall outside the house for a good 2 mins before even attempting to reach for my keys…..and with that …the week was done …….
Then on Friday night I thought “I wonder what my body fat %age is these days”
I know it was 40%+
and Today ?
I checked about 5 websites that all asked for several different measurements and all of them came back between 18% and 20.5%
All I could and can say about that is “BLOODY HELL”
Now all I need to do is get rid of all this damn skin I have !!!!
Ride Safe & LiveSTRONG
