- Since 1st January I have cycled 2,433 miles, this has included 122,000 feet of climbing. This is more than I would usually do if I'm spending time running.
- The reason for concentrating on cycling has been the Coast to Coast in a Day sportive - click here for my account of the 150 mile bike ride. This has been a wonderful "project" in terms of training, getting my bike right and the company of my friends who I did it with.
- At almost the last minute before the Coast to Coast I invested in a Garmin Edge 800 to help with navigation; I was afraid I'd miss a sign and get lost. I should say that when I'm tired I know I am less attentive and observant, therefore the chances of missing a sign were probably much higher. Having this gizmo now opens up further possibilities.... unless anyone makes me an offer I can't refuse (it cost me £218).
- During the months where cycling dominated, most weeks I have managed one run. Normally this has been about 3 miles, just enough to keep my hand in so to speak. Now is the time to pick that up once again....
