I am getting closer and closer to my ideal weight of 14 stone. When I started this weight loss thing I was 16stone 8lbs but following a rigorous and by way no means strict diet I am weighing 14st 12lbs. I'm very very happy with the way its going and really want to drop the final 12 lbs before June when I go to on holiday.
I have been using my IPhone to track my rides this year using a programme called Cyclemeter. I find this helpful in giving me an idea of my ride time and distance. This month i have ridden:
Climbed 6,207 feet
Burnt 11,760 Calories and
Maintained an average speed of 16mph
These miles are all road miles and do not include the various mountain bike rides I have done over the past few weekends. My legs feel strong and tomorrow I am going to ride another 50 miles meeting a friend on route.
My fitness is improving all the time but I am struggling with tiredness post ride. To combat this I now have energy drink in one bottle and water in the other making sure i drink lots of energy drink after an hours ride. When I get back i use recovery protein to help my legs and put back some the important nutrients that I have lost. For me SIS products work really well and don't make me feel sick like other energy drinks and protein I used previously.
Off to eat my own body weight in Pasta ready for tomorrow now...
