A brief run through of the past wee while...

Life has been a little intense over the past week or so and blogging has had to take a back seat for a bit – here are the highlights of the aforementioned time period!

*

- I've been aiming to do 30 miles in 2 hours hitting an average of 15mph but as yet have failed to achieve it. On Tuesday I was out for a 27 mile run and in the first hour did 15 miles... BIG result for me especially consider the route was quite hilly!

*

- On Wednesday I had my heart monitored for 24 hours due to an ongoing complaint of a thumping heart beat at night. Results out next week.

*

- I rode 40 miles today and set a personal best for mileage.

*

- The weight/fat gathered around and above my hips seems to be reducing – happy days and at long last.

*

- I bought a bandana for below my helmet to protect my baldy head when out cycling. The minute I did the rain arrived.

*

- Talking of helmets I found a crack in my current one and need to replace it. Raging as its only 10 years old ;-)

*

- I found a website that people in Northern Ireland actually sell their used bikes through – is a winter bike around the corner for me?

*

- I was confused today for being part of a cycling club – what a compliment!

Cycling seems to be going brilliant. I've never cycled up a hill in my life (there aren't any to speak of in my neck of the woods, and if I encounter a slight one I tend to get off and push!) so I stand in awe. 40 miles including hills!! I'm going to try for 12 today, no hills!

Hope the heart thing gets sorted out. I hate hearing my heart beat at night, which I sometimes do because of stress, even when I have no real reason to be stressed. Let us know when you get the results.
