My Activity Tracking
My target 1500kms
Day 25Due to a broken air conditioner , smoke inundating my home from the Cherry Gardens fire I had trouble sleeping so I got up and out on my bike just after 3:30am. Knowing that 50km's away was Murphy's Cafe Bakery at North Haven/Outer Harbour I headed North. I was there by 5:15am but he had forgotten to turn the coffee machine on! Oh, well, a chance to chat while the machine warmed up! Coffee only as I resisted the array of bakery goods! Before leaving there it started to rain. That was almost pleasant !
Day 17 of 31, 1,000km's of 1,500km Goal reached.Today I joined Pat's Ride for a Reason hills ride to Mt Lofty. I'm guessing there were 30 or so riders in the group today.
Day 11 of 31Fatigue has settled in but I'm managing it. A 50km ride today takes me to 651 km so far, from my 1,500km target. A change from cold mornings of late with 27C at 6am, half way through my ride today. These shorter rides I have been doing without breakfast with a 250ml skinny latte half way through the ride. Effort levels are mainly based on endurance/aerobic endurance power levels to minimise fatigue and maintain base fitness. I fuel myself well for any rides longer than 2 hours or harder efforts. It's a tough world right now which makes finding donations difficult. I am convinced I will not reach my donations goal but an determined to reach my riding goal.
Update, day 6To achieve my goal of 1,500 km's in January I will need to average 50km's per day for 30 of the 31 days. I'm currently on track with 349km's complete with 25 days left. I need to do a few longer rides to give me a buffer for bad days or illness.
I'm Riding for a reason in January
I am dedicating this January to ride 1,500 km’s to support the many South Australians impacted by cancer. Did you know that every day 28 South Australians hear the words ‘You have cancer’.
The money raised through Ride for a reason enables Cancer Council to fund vital prevention, research, advocacy and support programs that save lives.
With one in two Australians diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85, the need to find better ways to detect and treat cancer is real.
Donate to support my ride so together we can work towards a cancer free future!
