This week has been a week of reflection and looking forward
Of Old and of New
See, I was looking through some old Garmin stats and found quite a few days where my heart rate was well over 200BPM, a glitch ? Maybe but this was when I was REALLY FAT and was on several days, going down over time, as I got fitter and less fatter
Just look at the AVERAGE to know it wasn’t a glitch !
This week I spent it trying to get fit and chasing Strava KOM’s, I got 2 under my belt and a whole host of top 5′s, along with almost 130 miles and over 1200ft of climbing each day, by Friday I was shattered , so I took the short way into work, with tired legs I didn’t want to race, however all the training this week had paid off when I got to work and was greeted by these stats on my Garmin
6.25 Miles in under 19 Mins !!!!!!! not bad for feeling EXHAUSTED …….It spurred me on to add a mile or 2 extra on the way home, not even close to any KOM’s tho as I was totally done.
Keeping Me Sane
When I was off, because of my surgery, I wanted a project to keep me from climbing the walls, I had a full Ultegra Groupset, Bars, Post, Saddle, Wheels , Tyres so figured I’d build a bike,
It cost me virtually nothing to do as I had everything apart from the frame as all the other parts were from the Madone.
I’d say its turned out PRETTY DAMN Nice, Big up to the boys at the A6 Cycle’s for sorting out the wheel bearings though.
So a fully equipped Ultegra bike , for the cost of a Ribble Frame, the idea was to use this as a commuter over the hilly, longer commutes, but the last 2 weeks have taught me that I am fit enough now to use my Single Speed for that (Never thought I would be able to )
We Have Contact:
For years I have been too scared to wear contact lenses added to the issue of having a HIGH prescription AND a bad astigmatism, meant that contacts were out of reach for me for a long time.
Well, not any more
I now have Contact’s, because of how bad my eyes are, these are not 100% right, they are on order though, however, I am loving the difference they make, and of course, now I can wear some really cool Oakley et el Sunglasses.
This weeks update was produced with the background music of “KT Tunstall – Suddenly I See” did you SEE what I did there? :0)
