Photoshoot and a sprint
Then this afternoon a change to my usual training routine. I decided to do a 'sprint'. Well, a timed run over a known short distance. The circuit from home to Wickhambrook, via Hargrave, Ousden and back via Chevington keeps mainly to little-used roads and is 16½ miles long. One day I promise myself that I'll do it within the hour, but today it took 65 minutes. That works out at just over 15 mph, so I'm happy with that. On my old bike with its wide stippled tyres, I only managed to complete this route last year in an hour and twenty minutes.
Back home, I weighed myself to find that I've lost nearly half a stone since the turn of the year; in fact, since I started proper training at the beginning of March. So who needs a diet, when cycling can lose you pounds?!
