As you may know, I am training for my next cycling tour around the world by putting any kilometres I cycle in a week towards a virtual bike ride to India. The hope is, that by the time I come to leave on my next bicycle tour, I will have reached Delhi. However, going by this weeks dismal performance, I am not sure how likely that will be! Anyhow, here is how this weeks training and virtual bike ride to India panned out.
Thursday 07 November – Another 20kms cranked out on the bike, which is permanently attached to my turbo trainer in my living room! This would have taken me to a little place called Hastingwood
Friday 08 November – No training tonight, as I needed to get my gear and also myself ready for a weekend away in Brighton with the guys from work.
Saturday 09 November – No training all day, unless you count dancing in a nightclub until 3 in the morning training!?
Sunday 10 November – This day was a complete write off. Drink is evil!
Monday 11 November – I had a lot of catching up to do at home, so couldn’t spare the time to train. Working full time, running a house and keeping a travel blog takes a lot of time up!
Tuesday 12 November – No more excuses, and I was back on the bike for another 20kms – Yay me! This would have put me near Ilford.
Wednesday 13 November – I finished the week off with another 20kms on the bike.This would have placed me at around Lewisham, and worryingly, I still wouldn’t have made it out of the UK yet!!
That makes it a total of just 60kms for the week, I really need to get my act together if I am going to complete my virtual bike ride to India in a year!
