Well, now I know for sure I am capable of going for 52 miles, having done it (well, 83.7 km to be precise) last night on the stationery bike. It was quite a slog, but I managed it in 3 hours and 57 minutes, which I'm prety pleased with. I did feel a little bit nauseous, but a nice sit down and a KitKat soon set me right!

I'm surprised at how few aches and pains I have this morning - my lower back felt quite tender after a the first couple of hours, and... well, let's just say I'm glad I was wearing my trusty padded shorts! - but I've cycled into work as normal this morning, and am feeling pretty chipper (but still quite tired).

You're already up to 52 miles?!!! Unbelievable effort! I need to get myself one of those sit down bikes so I can watch TV/DVDs whilst I pedal. Keep up the good work and hope you're not too sore.

Thank you! I have to confess I haven't been on it since then, but I will do soon enough. Might just stick to one or two hours though, and work on my cadence for a bit. No sense in pushing myself too hard!
