Life on the Road in 2010 – Week 6

The purpose of this series of posting is to summarise my week on the bike and exercising in general etc.  My week runs from Thursday to Friday, so Week 6 for me in 2010 is from February 5, 2010 through to February 11, 2010.




Totals for the Week Total Bike Kilometres:502.01 km for the week;
2,034.80 km for the year.


100.2 kg; No lost this week; gained 300 grams.
Total weight loss for 2010: 2.6 kg.

BikeJournal Rankings:

  • Australian Cycling Forums Club – 7th. Gained five places and achieved my short term goal of getting back into the Top 10. Now to stay in the top 10 and move into the Top 5.
  • BikeJournal overall ranking – 51th. Gained 17 places. Current goal is to get back into the top 50.
Big week on the bike this week and I am feeling it at the end.

On the weight front, I started the year in a less than healthy position at 103 kg and I ended the week at 100.2 kg, so not a great week. My target for the month end is 95 kg, so still 5.2  kg to go.

Friday, February 5 70 km on the bike Had to go to the office for a meeting so did the Churchlands – Joondalup – Fremantle commute today.
Saturday, February 6 108 km on the bike Freo Wheelers Group 3 followed by a noon commute from Fremantle to Churchlands via the river.
