Back riding

Well apart from a weeks holiday at Mt Maunganui late last month, I now been for a half dozen or so rides over the last few weeks.

I've gradually picked up the distances and today rode my longest yet of 21 km, in 64 minutes.

The plan at the moment is to keep riding 3- 4 times a week at least through to early April when we lose our day light savings hour. This is due to be riding after work usually between 6 & 7 pm.

You can follow my training on dailymile which i've also got a link to in the side bar at right.

In need to get back into some strength training also , just a matter of finding time. That will probably need to be an early morning thing as I just can't see where else I would fit that in. Problem there is its difficult to throw weights around in the garage while the rest of the household is sleeping. Will just have to use nice slow movements i guess. There's plenty of exercises where you can just use your own body weight as resistance anyway so there are always options.

Not sure about running yet, still seem to have a niggle in the ankle which would likely flare up again once i started running again.

I'll close with some holiday snaps from beautiful Mt Maunganui.
