Yep I did it, I got into the Ride 100 through the ballot. Read on for my thoughts on the upcoming sportive and my very early goals for the day.
This is my write up from my 2 day ride around London. The London Revolution, this was a 300km ride starting in Enfield, stopping off at Windsor before returning to Enfield. Taking in some nice climbs in the north downs and chilterns.
This is my review of how things went for me during 2017. This was my second year of running, but really the first year where I actually had some structure to it.
The final two weeks of marathon training before running the New York Marathon on the 5th November. A training plan which pretty much started on the 27th December 2016, but the majority of the training began after the Paris Marathon in April. The New York marathon will be day 192 of this training block. Have a read how these 14 days went leading up to the marathon.
Just four weeks left until it is marathon day, my forth marathon of 2017 and possibly the biggest race of my life. I spent week 3 out in Arizona cycling 313 miles into Las Vegas, but have a read how week 4 went once I got back running in the UK.
On October 8th a group of 44 cyclists arrived in Cameron Arizona with a range of abilities but all with the same shared goal. Riding 300+ miles from Cameron Arizona, along the Grand Canyon, through the Arizona desert arriving at Last Vegas 5 days later. This is my personal account of how things went from my eyes, we all will have differing stories along the way but I hope you enjoy mine.
After July's GoTri this was my first attempt at a Sprint distance triathlon and forms part of my continuing training towards a full Ironman in Bolton next July.
