Finished the Sofa-to-50k!

Finished the Sofa-to-50k!

First, a disclaimer. For my Big Ride I didn't do a 50k road ride which is what this program was building up to. But I did manage 29 km (18 miles) off-road yesterday at Thetford Forest, where I did the Blue Trail (11 miles) and a sawn-off version of the Beaters Red Trail (5.4 miles). The remainder was clocked up by my having to zip back and forth to my car parked in a remote field and losing my way a bit! I know I couldn't have done any more, so I'm very happy with it. I'm never going to ride on roads, so I had to part company with The Plan. I am down another half kilo (pound) this week to 100.7 from last week's 101.2 so that's great. Now I plan to keep going on the same pattern (2 x weekday rides @ one hour each, 1 x weekend ride of about 2-3 hours). I will also keep up with the Tai Chi because it really helps with aches and pains, esp. the old bursitis. Oh, and walks on non-bike days.

  • Oh my! How fantastic, very well done mayaena 😊 Just fabulous 😊

    I am similarly cautious of cycling on roads and am hoping to get a bike and find some local off-road routes, nothing beats that feeling does it?

    Very well done

  • No Anna61 you're right. Off-road cycling is really booming in the UK now, with dedicated trail centres springing up all over the place. So lots of other people feel the same as we do! It's such a lovely way to enjoy being in nature. In fact I might do a post about it.
