I went for a really stupid bike ride yesterday - I didn't think it was stupid when I set off but when I arrived home completely spent 4 hours later I knew it was too hard for me.
I made it to 40 miles in 3:15 and all the tough climbing was out of the way but just ran out of fuelling and my quads just felt like they had melted away - last 6 miles took me over 45 mins and I had to stop and get off a couple of times as felt a bit lightheaded - over 4500 feet of climbing - think that might be my last long bike ride of the summer.
Running wise this week I'm just doing 4 * 3miles but will go to 4 * 4 miles week after if no ill effects then 4* 5 miles week after that. Then I might stop there for a bit - my aim is to be running about 30 miles a week for November through to January but need to get to 20 miles a week problem free first.
Pete - I'll post a couple of photos of view from our cottage. Unfortunately there was a bump with some trees on between us and the Lake so GG looks a little bit insignificant but still a cracking view - the garden also had a plum tree in it and all the plums were ripe - that was packed lunch fruit sorted!
