There’s a bit to catch up on since my last blog. The weight loss is still carrying on at pace. I’m now seeing 14 stones on the scales at 14 stones, 12lb. That’s a 104lb loss!
It’s March 1 and that’s spring in my book. I’m now preparing to be totally confused as to how to dress on my early morning commutes to work.
I’m writing this half way through November, which means my winter commuting is already well under way. Last week was 5 days of torrential rain and flooded towpaths to pedal through and this week it’s been severe frosts and ice. Which means streaming eyes and a river of snot to contend with. Where does all that liquid come from?
This pedal over the mountains behind Machynlleth and Aberdyfi was the personal target that I’d set myself since I started this fat to thin by bike thing back in June last year.
Up early, did all of the leave the house all alone admin and cracked on. A bright sunny day no less!
I’ve lost 4 stone 12lb, annoyingly just 2lb short of 5 stone, and I’ve pedalled a grand total of 3284 miles.
The last time I pedalled 50 miles in one go was when I was about 21 or 22 years old. In fact, just before I took up mountain biking seriously, which tends to be less big on mileage, although harder work!
Today is about food. We all love food, obviously some more than others!
As you’ll know if you’ve been reading this blog, I’m primarily pedalling to lose weight but with the added benefit of being able to get back out on my mountain bike.
Clive’s been racking up the miles and smiles so much that he lays out his plan about re-riding an old adventure from back in the day.
