Well Sunday came round a little too quick for my liking and before I knew it I was back on my bike and this week I was feeling a little more confident! I even managed to dress myself correctly for the ride although I did need help off my 8 year old to find my helmet. Anyway, off Mark and I went – minus Jemma who seems to have an aversion to turning up! Three weeks in and no sign of her, it’s a good job she is doing her bit on a Wednesday night by training me on the weights.
So week one was 12miles, week 2 was 25miles and this week a whopping 40 miles which I have to say was extremely tough but very encouraging as with 10 weeks to go we should easily get up to the magic 70 in one session. My only issue this week was I forgot my saddle cream! I won’t make that mistake again.
