5 in a row @ IMUK Wk 13/26

Rookie Goes for 5 in a row @: IMUK Week 13 of 26


Half way there……

Livin on a prayer and all that….

2 Things of note this week….

First, if you want to make your road running feel like a piece of piss, try trail running through mud for a change…..

That’s what I did this week….

Boy was I glad to see tarmac…..


I rode a 2:05 loop Friday….


Bloody excellent for me that…..

The holy grail is sub 2…..

5 minutes for the wind and 5 minutes for the 2 stone of excess lard….

Sort them and we’ve cracked it cock….

By the way, if that was you coming in the other direction who gave me a ‘Go on lad’ roar as I came stomping up the Bolton sailing club bit in the middle of the road then you are a fookin legend my son…..

Here is how training went this week….


Tuesday….40min trail run

Wednesday……40 min tarmac run (I know which i prefer)

Thrusday…..Off – mowed the lawn

Friday…2:05 IMUK loop www.strava.com/activities/5063186323
