I've got so much going on at the moment that any attempt to keep this blog updated has fallen by the wayside. When I agreed to take part in London Revolution — cycling 180 miles around London on May 18 & 19 — I figured I'd write about each and every bike journey I made and post it here as an online record of my training progress. But I haven't had the energy or the time to do that.
Thank goodness, then, for my Garmin, which records everything for me — that is when I remember to wear my heartrate monitor or I don't accidentally switch off my iPhone.
According to my Garmin Connect account I have cycled 238* miles since the start of the year. This doesn't really sound like much to me, given I'll be cycling 75% of that distance in two days in just two months' time. But my first cycle of the year was on January 28, so this represents just 6 weeks of training — and with the weather, my stupid schedule and everything in between (including the dreaded return of my psoriatic arthritis which has been in remission for two years), it's amazing that I've managed to cycle at all.
Hopefully, if spring ever arrives, I'll do much more cycling in the lead up to the event. I'll keep you posted.
* I've adjusted this figure to take into account the two 6 mile journeys that were not recorded.
