12/9/14 - 9 days to go!

So 9 days to go with nearly 200 pound donated, thank you to everyone who has sponsored me so far.
Time is ticking down now and i havent got as much training in as i would of liked. With only 3 days a week training with an average of just over 30 miles a ride, it got me worrying. How on earth will i get through a gruelling 100 miles when the most i have ever done is 50. Plus thanks to an unfortunate back injury caused the other week by playing football, it has knocked me back a week.

Oh well, nevermind, i have booked a week off work, and gonna get some miles in my legs. I am knocking football on the head this sunday morning, dont want any setbacks again!! Instead i will be going on a group ride with the lads, and we will be cycling about 50 miles, although i might carry on and do a bit more.

Monday and  Tuesday I will cycle around 30 miles. On Wednesday I will do a big 75 miles and see how I get on. Thursday and Friday I will do a light 30 miles. On Saturday I will be doing bugger all and will just sit and load up on carbs. That’s the plan anyway!
 

No idea what i have let myself in for but i am confident, and after reading the positive blogs from the riders of the London bikeathon, i am really looking forward to it.
