January - 18 stone and 3 lbs

Fat bloke rides fatbike.

Thats just about the heaviest I've ever been, 4 stone heavier than when I last raced properly.

Not drank any alcohol so far this month, eating sensibley, starting to exercise again, mix of commutes, some gym work (which I hate with a passion) and starting last weekend some decent rides, 2 full days of beach riding over the weekend, hopefully a road day this coming Saturday and another beach ride on Sunday.

Feb will be spent on the cross bike, going to set my self a target of 600 miles for Feb.

Jan 4th 2012

30in30 was planned for January, didnt happen for various reasons, life has a way of throwing you sometimes...

One good thing I have stuck to though is not drinking since new years eve, 4 days in and already I'm feeling the benefits

Anyway, I've not felt much like riding so decided to go to the gym at work tonight, now I know from bitter experience that diving in and mashing yourself is dumb, I'm older now and slitghtly less dumb so 15 gentle minutes was all I intended to do.

10 minutes jogging on the running machine and 5 minutes rowing, it was enough, I felt my right calf muscle tightening when I upped the speed and gradient so backed straight off, and my belly was getting in the way whilst rowing :-(.

So, its started, tomorrows weather looks better so I'll ride to work, might even weigh myself in the morning, prepare for a shock (thats me not you)
