More training talk

As usual, M and I were out this morning.  The weather, after being wet for the last couple of days, had dried up a bit, and resorted to strong gusty wind instead.  Ah well, you can’t have everything.  Actually as it turns out it wasn’t as bad as I’d been expecting, and it also wasn’t quite as cold as a result.  Result indeed!

We pottered around in our usual way, putting the world to rights, around Wedmore, Mark, Brent Knoll, etc.  We didn’t plan a route, just kinda made it up as we went along, which seemed to work out ok.

Cycling time: 2:07:33
Distance: 31.776 miles
Avs: 15.0 mph
ODO: 8844.7 miles

As you can see, the average was ok, much better than I was expecting after a weekend of conspicuous consumption…there’s clearly no justice *grin*.

Talking of this weekend – I attended a pre-L2P event at the Walkabout Pub in London.  There was a presentation about the charity AMR, and more importantly one from Discover Adventure who actually run the trip.  So I know a lot more about the logistics of things now, which is important when you like to be as organised as I do.  I also picked up some fundraising ideas which may come in handy as I still have a long way to go on that front.  I may be over half way there…but only just!  I’m actually more worried about raising the money than doing the miles – daft, no?  If you haven’t sponsored me yet – please sponsor me!
