As of Wednesday Morning , I was BACK !
What the medical profession suspected to be something pretty darn serious, actually “Seems” to have turned out to be fixable with a few drugs, Fingers crossed the results of the test confirm this.
I never did an “April in Review” so keeping in mind I missed a week due to holidays and illness, how did I get on ?
Distance 477.21 mi
Elevation Gain 24,219 ft
Calories: 33,412 C
Max Speed 44.5 mph
Avg Speed:15.1 mph
Avg HR:145 bpm
Am I happy with that ? You bet yer-ass Im happy with those stats in 3 weeks worth of commuting.
My One Project, Custom Trek Madone:
This week I managed to get it finished (Or so I thought) , adding yellow tyres, bartape and a brand new SRAM Force chainset to replace the faulty one, I have not rode this since the fist week I built it, The other thing left to do now, is order longer reach drops and a better front Mech & get the steer tube cut.
Again, Im HAPPY with that result too 🙂
The Last 3 Days:
Since being back, I managed to cycle 55 miles, average 19.1 Mph on one commute and ever pick up a new set of Mavic SPD shoes
Friday night was horrendous, VERY nearly being hit 3 times on the way home, once by a bus, my nerves were shattered by the end of the commute , but Im ready to go again, its rare I get days like that/feel like that, Just need to put it behind me now.
I did put a “few” pounds on when I was off, but I have managed to get 80% of them back off this week, the rest should fall into line next week.
On the bike front, there is something VERY VERY Special headed my way……..
Finally I wanted to end by saying, RIP Wouter, I have a tribute headed your way.
If this or I have inspired you, then PLEASE sponsor me for the 2011 Manchester to Blackpool charity ride, together, we CAN beat cancer.
