Weekending 6 Aug 06

Monday: 1 1/2 Hours in the gym, twice around the weight machines 20 mins on cross trainer on fitness test. 10 mins on rowinging machine.
Spinning class, still sweating buckets, highlight of the class was someone bringing in a gel cover for the spinning bike seat. That must be one sore backside.
Tuesday: 1 hour in the gym, usual weight routine. 30 mins on cross trainer on cross country prog 400 cals burnt. 5 mins rowing 56 cals burnt (it felt like more).
Spinning class, tried using cycling shoes on the SPD pedals which made the climbing sections easier.
Wednesday:Down to Eureka for breakfast. Picked  up a CTC ride along with 7 others to a garden centre in Utkinton I think. After lunch it was on to Kelsall and a trip up and down The Yeld which was done on the middle ring. I’ve got to admit I’d have never managed to suss out routes through the countryside like these. History lessons are included from Bob. Took in too much to list here but it was a great day out.
The rain cape got a try out on the ride home from the Eureka and I need to look at what I’m eating on days out over 50 miles as I needed a stop for fuel 5 miles from home again.
63 miles. 
Thursday: Spinning class that I nearly missed due to it starting at 5.45.
Friday: Down to the Eureka for breakfast, then home via Dee marsh and climb to Ness gardens, thru Neston to Parkgate onto Heswall then home via Rest Hill. Virtually danced up Rest Hill so things are definatley improving. 26 miles.
Saturday: nothing planned , waiting in for Currys to deliver a new cooker. Cooker delivered damaged, not a good day went for a drive looking at routes.
Sunday: Absolutley stunning day, my first 100 mile ride ! which is worthy of a post/page all by itself. Last 25 miles was in the rain but I wasn’t bothered. Many thanks to Bob and the Chester and North Wales CTC for leading us out to the stop by Bangor on Dee. I couldn’t do this by myself, the route, company, and scenery all contributed to a mind blowing day. 102.67 miles.

The week: 191.67 miles, 2.5 hrs in the gym. 3 spinning classes. 
Literally a life transformed, only a couple of Kg from coming out out of the obese class into the world of the overweight. I don’t know how to repay those that have helped me along the way other than putting it on here.
