Longer Morning Journey – BionicOldGuy

I’ve modified my schedule so Monday is my longest journey of the week. That is the journey I’ll be ramping up every week till I do a metric century a while later this month (one among two Strava challenges I signed up for in March). Yesterday’s journey (on Strava right here) was 41 miles in slightly below 3 hours half-hour, leaving me pleasantly drained. I had meant this to be my first “Beaumont block” of the yr, however needed to reduce it quick as a result of I needed to repair a flat. I obtained this time period from Mark Beaumont’s description of his around the world biking report (The Man Who Cycled the World).

He achieved his wonderful common each day mileage by driving 4 blocks of 4 hours every day, with a brief break in between, after which one longer each day break. So I did nearly one 4 hour block immediately. I don’t suppose I might have been able to get again on the bike and do one other block after a brief break, that’s one thing I’d should work as much as. I can see myself doing presumably two blocks. However not 4, and positively not averaging 4 for 78 days in a row which is what Mark did for the report.
