Life on the Road in 2010 – Week 7

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 7 for me in 2010 is from February 12, 2010 through to February 18, 2010.




Totals for the Week Total Bike Kilometres:407.13km for the week;
2,441.93 km for the year.


99.2 kg; At last some movement; lost 1,000 grams.
Total weight loss for 2010: 3.6 kg.

BikeJournal Rankings:

  • Australian Cycling Forums Club – 7th. No change in ranking this week.
  • BikeJournal overall ranking – 47th. Gained 4places.
Okay week on the bike this week, kilometres down, but averaging 348.85 km a week. Would like to get this too 400 km a week.

On the weight front, I started the year in a less than healthy position at 103 kg and I ended the week at 99.2 kg, so a better week; good to see the number heading south at last. My target for the month end is 95 kg, so still 4.2  kg to go.

On it is good to back in the top 50th. Next goal is to catch up with my 2009 nemesis, Jughead. Jughead is currently 90.1 km ahead of me.

In respect to the Australian Cycling Forums Club at my current goal is make the top 5.

Friday, February 12 36 km on the bike Good to get back to river commutes to Fremantle, even if there is a 13% grade hill to climb!
Saturday, February 13 91 km on the bike Change of group this morning and rode with Velopilot with the SPR Transitions group. Not for me. After the ride returned home and picked up the loaded Sir Lancelot for commute duties on Monday.
Sunday, February 14 No km on the bike Recovery day
Monday, February 15 70 km on the bike Fremantle to Joondalup to Churchlands commute on Sir Lancelot.
Tuesday, February 16 75 km on the bike Churchlands to Joondalup and then on to Fremantle in the afternoon on the Look 555. Personal best for 2010 on the Churchlands to Joondalup – Coastal leg.
Wednesday, February 17 75 km on the bike Fremantle to Joondalup to Churchlands commute. Not my best day; sore legs.
Thursday, February 18 57 km on the bike Churchlands to Joondalup via the coast in the morning. Some interval training, but not on top of it. Returned by the freeway as I didn’t feel like battling a 33 km/h southerly down the coast.
