Well.. I’ve got my bike fixed now, it’s now sporting a Shimano SLX rear Mech and LX shifters. Nice crisp and precise shifting.. Fantastic!!
Anyway, enough of that rubbish. My training for HTN 1.5 can now start. I’ve got a nice loop that passes my house, 4 miles long with a big drop down RMR to start off with, before dropping down past the old Turner Bros Asbsestos factory, a climb up through Woodland Drive to the Healey Dell bridalway.
A pootle along the bridalway, before turning left and the ride up past Spring Mill Reservoir, through Prickshaw Village and Lane Head.
Sunday ride – 40 minutes, with 2 minutes breather time.
My target by the end of January is to be able to complete 3-4 laps in 2 hours and a lap time of 30-35 minutes.
Weight loss so far – 7lbs in 3 weeks.
Target weight 189 lbs, 10 more to go!
