Day 2 - Rain delayed!

Day 2 

The Rainy Day fund....


Day 2 - things are going really well, my sponsor page is up to £115 in under 24 hours which is fantastic! Facebook wall has turned into a fund raising shrine, but I don't care, such a great cause and something to tick off my "Bucket List"... something I keep adding to on a monthly basis it seems! 

Work have confirmed that they will match donations up to £200 which is brilliant it makes me want to smash the £750 target!

News has surfaced that I might be getting a backing sponsor to help towards donations which will be a warm welcome! more information to come. 

Unfortunately the training plan has slipped today due to weather! I don't feel 100% safe when its soaking wet and traffic everywhere however, I am going to complete a 18 mile ride to work (even if its raining but I will be setting out earlier than rush hour) as I need to make up from missing today's training. 

Food plan is going well also, resisting the temptations of the office life, sinking back the water and eating right!

Day 1 - Prudential Ride 100 

Today is the first day of my training, I've loaded up the My Fitness Pal app to help me shift a few LB's before the event day which is August 4 2013.A fairly easy ride  to ease me in today. I have decided that I am going to complete the Improver training plan which can be found here to help me achieve my completion time of 7 hours.

I have been selected to take part in the first Prudential Ride 100 by the Katherine House Hospice, Stafford - more information about the hospice can be found here

Tonight I completed a 6.7 mile ride lasting just under 30 minutes 

Average speed - 15.6 mph
Max Speed - 25.5 mph 

Tomorrow's training 1 hour morning ride - looks like its going to be an early rise! 0545 start! 

Fundraising page is also set up if you would like to donate
