2nd week of trainingt completed. I bought a cheap bike computer and it tells me a lap of the local "lake" is 1 mile and it's just over 2 miles to get there so that's a ready-built training arena.
Today I did 10 laps ( = 16 miles!), 6 of them in the rain and my back's aching so tomorrow is my rest day
I feel very humbled by the number of people sponsoring me and making such heart-felt comments.
Note to myself.... oil the chain before the next outing!
