So I'm on day 139 and at 13,754km so it's going pretty well. I'm having a rest/light evening tonight as i felt rough cycling home and I want to be recovered for Sunday as I've got a 200mile ride. (That's fairly epic). Evening spins are my favourite, i love hitting out 80km+ after work. I spend a huge amount of time riding alone but i do enjoy it.
It's weird as I've got in such a good routine now, I can manage work well and i use the weekends to recover but also to do some extra kms, as i do have one lighter day in the week where i only commute. Life on the other hand is hard to manage at points with this challenge, I've had a funeral this week and I've got a memorial next Monday and i found it hard at the funeral to keep eating. I didn't feel right to bring food into the Cathedral so I only ate like a normal person on Tuesday and had about 4hours without food which was too long. I got incredibly tired because of this and I struggled to be there for my GF and her family (I feel pretty bad about this). So I'm going to take her out for food tomorrow night, we'll cycle there though 😂
I've done a few group rides now which have been good, the first one was about of a macho CG where they were very militant with rotating and times. Odd for me as i spend a lot of time riding so wanted to be at the front more because some of the other guys were struggling so I thought it would help. I got told off and told to go to the faster group, even though i was riding with my mates... I won't return to that one. The second one was amazing, very chilled and chatty. A few of us sat at the front and I spent the whole 60miles getting to know new people which was lovely.
We've put back LEJOG till the 31st of July too.
Some days i find the distance really daunting but most of the time it's manageable.
