January Roundup

Somehow I stopped doing these in the latter months of last year. But after a fantastic January I think it's time to start again. I don't really hold for New Years Resolutions and stuff, but this January has been fantastic and if the New Year has had something to do with that I'm not complaining.

So the numbers:

Mountain Bike: 255miles (107miles SS)
Cyclocross Bike: 48miles 
Road Bike: 668miles (434miles fixed)

Total Cycling: 971miles
Running: 10.7miles

Which all added up to 83hours cycling and nearly 2 hours running!

Since records began (2008) I've never had a January like it. So the plan is to continue and hopefully build on it. Still want to get some more hill rep sessions in and hopefully ride with Chris when I have fresher legs one day soon so I can work a little harder. I've entered Hit the North and hopefully will ride another Audax event (although not the North West Passage as I'd hoped as I'm now working). Oh and keep with the running, I'm determined to keep it up this year as it is good for my fitness and less of a shock to the legs if a race has a running start!


  1. 85 hours!!!!!!!! I thought Ihad a good January with less than half that volume, lol. Keep it up!

  2. and you couldnt round it up to 1000miles. what happened to riding round the block to sort it?

  3. I know Chris it was close, but means I can aim for 1000miles in a month laeter in the year!

  4. I think you've done more in Jan than I did in all of 2010

  5. That's one heck of a January!
