I sparked controversy a couple of days ago. I’ve had some pretty opinionated comments on Instagram from people who have since been removed from my circles. Why? I hear you ask? Well consider this photo. I’m out on my Fiido enjoying a ride. I’ve got the trailer hitched on the back and I’ve just beenContinue reading “What’s with all the hate guys?”
This week I crossed the 100kg boundary in the right direction (down). Now I’m aware how weight works and how a few hours later I could be back up at 101kg, but it was a delight to see the scales lose a digit. Over the last few weeks I’ve been collecting together both my oldContinue reading “Another fitness post…”
I can’t believe how my stamina and fitness are improving. This little 8 mile ride would have killed me at one point but now I can do it on the DaHon without much concern. I’ve even got myself a new bag for it – it’s meant to go under the saddle on the seat post,Continue reading “A little 8 mile hop.”
The reason I added a question mark is because I think this will be a challenge for me – not just because of my fitness levels, but because of my time commitment – it takes me about an hour to do 7 miles at present, so that’s around a 15 hour commitment – however –Continue reading “100 miles in May?”
We’re definitely having some amazing weather right now. Plenty of opportunity for some great bike rides. Biking is one of the ways I’m improving my fitness. Considering how unfit I have actually been at some points in my life I’m determined now as I approach 50 to never let myself get like that again. MyContinue reading “Amazing weather we’ve been having!”
It’s been a bit of an unlucky one so far, but I do love it. It’s an Orange frame from the late 90’s I’m led to believe – but it has been chopped around a little. In one weekend I’ve snapped a derailleur mount, and now today I’ve now got a puncture and had toContinue reading “The newest bike.”
Today was a really odd day. We’d planned on a bike ride, just a short one as I’m still building my energy up. It was a rather muddy one – but I knew it would be and I did actually wear leather jeans! Great for wiping down after. We didn’t do quite as far asContinue reading “Sunday”
So I started the week thinking I was getting chunky again. Not quite as bad as before, but the new scales made me realise just how inaccurate the old ones were; and boy were they bad. As a scientist by training it’s always been within my mind that no equipment is good unless it isContinue reading “A bike!”
I’m not sure if this is a lockdown thing, or just because I’ve been so busy, but as someone who doesn’t actually have an exercise regime I think this is pretty bloody good!
I suppose lockdown isn’t going to help that – I often walk into town to shop, and also we’re not doing any gigs. I’ve not weighed myself in a few months and I was quite surprised. I didn’t feel fat, but I tried on one of my stagewear suits yesterday and it felt tight.
