Half the year is gone !

I can’t believe that half of 2011 is gone already! Where has it gone? Time seems to just slip away so quickly these days, doesn’t it?

June was a weird month exercise wise for me. Absolutely no running, but the most kilometres I’ve ever done in a month on the bike(s) – 813km for the month. And, despite no running, June was the most calories I’ve ever burnt in a month too, just breaking the 25,000 kCal barrier. This isn’t surprising though, I just checked my training journal and there was only one day for the month without an entry. Note to self: take a rest day occassionally.

One achievement I’m really pleased with this month is I seem to have gotten myself into the habit of riding to work every day. Buying some wet weather booties and a decent light have really made this a lot more achievable. I think that I am really arriving home at night feeling more relaxed and happier than I used to after sitting in traffic for 45 minutes.

Out to tea with friends we haven’t seen for a while tonight which will be nice, I’m looking forward to catching up over a few glasses of red!

Have a nice weekend everyone!

    The thought struck me this morning as well that the year is halfway done – INCREDIBLE!

    You are true inspiration with riding to work come hell or high water, Andrew – I’m in awe at the kms you’ve logged.

    And you’re proof of what I’ve lately been learning: that in order to achieve our goals, we really need to set up ourselves for success, otherwise nothing happens. Like getting wet-weather gear and a light, for instance. Good, that! I’m taking notes and adapting…

    Wow some great km’s you are racking up on the bike Andrew. Excellent. There will be no catching you at Amy’s ride next year.

    Nice work mate. I’m thoroughly impressed that you’re still attacking the vTdF. I gave it up for dead a long time ago.

    I totally agree, time goes by so fast! I’m happy to read biking is going so well with you, and I can’t believe our rode so many km in a single month! 😯 (This is what other people go by car in a month! :D)

    A few glasses of wine make the world go round. Enjoy! 😉
