Now I have completed my triathlon I thought it was time to focus on the ride London and really get some training in.
I have never ridden further than 50 miles so I decided to do one big ride a week starting at 40 miles and building the up by 5 miles each week, which would bring me to 100 in plenty of time for the big event.
I work about 15 miles from my house so thought it would be the perfect way of getting some miles in without eating too much time of my evenings and weekends. I have been working there for over a year now and I have always said that I wanted to bike to work.
Last Friday, I decided not to keep talking about it and just to do it. So I set my alarm for 5:30 got my bike and stuff ready and did it. I cycled to work.
It only took me an hour and 6 minutes there and an hour and 7 minutes home. I have to admit I felt amazing! Now don’t get me wrong I was nakered when I got to work and when I arrived home, but I had done 30 miles!!
The plan now is to ride to work every Friday (as long as the weather plays ball) and then hopefully increase that to two times a week.
