Unpublished post from 2 months ago…and today

WRITTEN AT THE BEGINNING OF APRIL i wrote this a few months ago, but never got round to posting it.. i guess i hit my peak, and through ill heath or poor luck this feeling continued until recently.. so here is what i wrote then, and at the end i have put a paragraph about…

Tuesday at 2pm

Gloomy and grey- its the only way to describe today in Melbourne. Having just finished the public holiday long weekend, its back to work and dreaming of what is ahead this week. The last 3 days have been great, so it is hard to be back in the office, but that also gives me time…

Overnight? I’m Keen.. Looking Forward

Back on the bike this week after nearly 4 weeks of forced recovery – after my little heart scare. That time has meant missing my goal event for the year – the “moama 3 hr Enduro”  While it is disappointing not to attend the race after putting a year of training in, i know other…

My coach Jess asked me to write a quick post about my experience this…

Tuesday at 2.

Lets begin with this- I hate Tuesdays, i always have.  Of all the days of the week i think Tuesday is the worst.  Nothing good can happen on a Tuesday/ Everybody knows… Monday sucks but once its over its over, Wednesday is hump day, Thursday is payday and Friday is the end of the work…

The Journey so far

Well, as we move into 2017- it is great looking back and reflecting on what was a great year last year. I set out to improve my fitness and enjoy my cycling more- both ambitions achieved.  I started using a coach to prescribe my training and help me fit everything in, and that has worked…

Climbing…

So as i ride more it appears i am seeking out more altitude as well.  Climbing on a bike has never been my strong suit being a larger man, however i have always enjoyed descending. The old saying goes something like “what comes up needs to go down” but for me the challenge has always…
