My Training Activity
Last 7 days
Longest Ride: Sun 3rd / 212kms
And it's done!
Friends, family, work, you've all ensured I've come through and thanks to Zwift I've made a range of new friends and connections that have allowed me to set up an ongoing fitness plan that works in my life.
Now to work on improving that (moving) time in 2022!
4 weeks to go - what is the plan?For those following along you will have likely seen the news that the ride has been postponed. It won't be run in October, and while there's efforts to try and make it work early 2022, there is a chance it will be cancelled.
6 weeks out!6 weeks until ride day and COVID is really having a good old time in Melbourne.
My aim was to work on two things
This was about where I wanted to be this far out from the ride - it's only another 35km more - 1 - 1.5hrs depending on pace - I know I can do that.
Those who follow on facebook - I have committed to riding whether this ride goes ahead or not. Whether it will be my own route around my home, or virtually through Zwift - we all committed to me doing something stupid - and I'm going to follow through.
4 months to goIt’s been a difficult month. My longest ride at 120km and then two weeks of a cold and now lockdown.
skill buildingYesterday I didn't have as much time to give to a longer ride, and after Saturday's 100k I wanted to work a bit on my stamina when it comes to inclines.
I had an initial goal in mind of 10 loops, after 3 rounds I got a little worried. After 6 loops I was concerned and after 7 I decided I'm too old to be that stubborn.
For just over 30km, I had an elevation gain of 520m. These little snippets will be important over the next 5 months.
In other news, I looked at the 16 week training program provided by the Bicycle Network - that's another post in itself.
5 months to go - launch of fundraising!I'm officially launching my fundraising page today. 5 months today I will be riding my longest ride ever, 210km as part of celebrating my 40th year, what is possible, and for an incredibly good cause.
I'll be challenging myself throughout the winter to grow my capacity, my fitness, my understanding of my body (fuel needs!), and learning more along the way about myself, my mental strength and the science/mechanics of cycling - and I hope making new friends along the way.

Congrats on setting this goal for yourself. And it is a fantastic way to help charity; I had never heard of this before. I will donate again, as time allows.
