30 day sit up challenge….

So set out to do something that seemed simple but for a a bunch of reasons has proved to be quite hard.

Warning ⚠️ excuses below!!

I mentally found it easier to put an hours exercise every day , against a few minutes sit-ups.

The black dogs (depression) been hanging round a bit this past two weeks, which has resulted in lots of art work: see Black Sheep 🐑 Projects but the focus on this challenge has waited

Lock down… again!! Urgh!!

Gonna quit??

So I could quit… it’s only me challenging myself, but that means that quiet voice in my head who’s been saying…. do it later, you’ll have time, do this instead will win!

He also says to slow down, take it easy, drink beers, eat crap, don’t ride today…

Well FCUK him!

220 sit ups a day to get to the 30 day challenge number!

On it!

So I’ve added the first 100 of today’s on to this video and I’ll post every 700 sit-ups

Fully loaded 50km

Same route as 3 days ago, but a world of difference, it was cold but dry and bright,

The gravel bike fully loaded feels great until your into the wind then i really noticed the loss of aerodynamics but after an hour it just felt normal.

This is training for coast to coast ride later in October, so gonna be riding a loaded bike for the next few weeks.

But today… I just didn’t want to stop, I could have kept riding all day.

Lady bower hike.

Had a great hike with friends yesterday. In one of my favourite places in the world to be Derwent and Lady Bower reservoir.

Loved the hiking, was so wanting to run it!

All the training now until the end of October is focused on being ready to bikepack the UK coast to coast ride, but November is going to be all about the running! (Mostly)
