It has been about a year and a half since Caitlin and I ran the Reading half marathon for LLR so I was beginning to look around for others events to do. As I injured my feet last time (determined to run a time under 2 hours - I did it in 1.58) more running was out of the question. Ben then found this bikeathon and so we thought it would be a great event to train up for before starting our first teaching jobs in September.
With Ben currently in Cambodia visiting his mum, I have started to go on some small evening rides to get used to being on my bike. This weekend I am planning on going on a longer ride to see how much I can do without it hurting too much the next day! And then the proper training will begin next week. I think it will be hard work getting up to 52 miles!
