    Finally some nice weather here so I did a break from Rouvy and went out for a short and a bit windy autumn ride outside. And now another workout to clean my bike before going back to a trainer tomorrow.

    About 50 minutes on the turbo with a new (to me) zwift-a-like free app called mywhoosh.
    First ride crashed about 15 minutes in and didn’t save, WiFi is iffy in my garage so I’m blaming that. Second 36 minute ride saved ok.

    Day 66 then.

    Some more snow forecast so I took off up a local Munro before it arrives.PXL_20231121_110232920
    I guess this should really be in the “incessant snow” thread.

    PXL_20231121_121410165

    More of a hard frost along the summit ridge.

    PXL_20231121_124640874

    Big icy puddles to avoid.

    PXL_20231121_125838707I’d stupidly forgotten my torch and had to abandon a second summit I wanted to visit.

    66. Short walk and then 45 mins doing the same program as last week on an indoor techno bike at the gym. I took it up a level but it was still a bit tame.

    69. (Or possibly not).

    Not much other than a quick walk at lunchtime and 30 plus minutes of yoga with Breathe and Flow. Definitely a more testing workout.

    Happy birthday @scotroutes

    Park run done – lovely morning at oakwell – cold feet until the second lap. Cold hands – both laps.  That was number 230 for me.

    No Parkrun today (230 @olddonald?? that’s impressive. Think I’m on 7 😂), nor any bike rides thus week. I’ve managed to keep going since last week’s Parkrun, just, with walks thanks to a horrendous chest infection and the associated asthma issues 😢 Really hope the steroids start working soon, though I best not enter any races just in case of doping irregularities 😂😂😂

    This week I have cycled for at least an hour each evening, last night was a two hour dog walk with some friends which ended in the pub.
    The plan was to ride first thing but it was too cold (it wasn’t really) but I chickened out. Made up for it this afternoon though with a very muddy local ride where I got stuck and ended up trying to ride across a field of sugar beet! It would have been difficult on the fatty, near on impossible on a gravel bike. All good fun!
    It’s great to read what you’ve all been up to, I definitely need some mountains.😀

    Well over the last month being going pretty intense. Zwift, boxing bag, swimming, weights. Jeans feeling very lose and down a dress size. Jumped on the scales and not lost an ounce!
    How bizarre, how bizarre.

    I missed another day on the 16th, due to motivation if I’m honest. Despite this and a niggly knee, I’ve kept at it since. In addition to the specified exercise, whenever the sun has shone I’ve gone out to try and make the most of it during the short days. Also keeping up with stretching and upper body improvements. I’m going to post here every day this coming week to try and help with the motivation.

    25km XC ride this morning, decided not to do park run as I hadn’t been on the bike for a few weeks and wanted to take advantage of the sun. Had to ride through a flooded causeway between two lakes though so my feet were bloody freezing!

    The whole of the last 5 days have been Fails for me, dealing with family stuff has just left me completely exhausted and unable to do anything whatsoever. Managed a Zwift Robo Rider spin for 30 mins this evening though so now just focussing on beating my PB of 74/100, should be easily achievable as that’s just 2/3 days for the rest of the challenge.

    Day 71 (Sat 25th)

    Met piemonster for a chat/food/beers then a walk in to a wee bivvy spot near Loch Morlich.

    The moon was so bright we hardly needed the headtorches.

    PXL_20231125_200354446.NIGHT

    Very calm at the bivvy spot and the moon was lighting everything up

    PXL_20231125_204050899

    I was on the lookout for the reported aurora but couldn’t see any colour in the sky at all.

    Day 72 (Sun 26th)

    Obviously had to walk back out from our bivvy spot :-)

    It had been chilly overnight – anouh for some ground frost and a thin layer on parts of the tent.

    PXL_20231126_080558347

    Fine morning at Loch Morlich. Frost on the beach but no ice yet.

    Somewhere I’ve lost track of what day# is what date. Apart from one day missed, I’ve done something every other day, but clearly can’t write it down correctly.
    Day 67  – turbo session 30.31 km in 56 minutes at 185w. Walked round the Thames at lunchtime 4.43 km in 46 mins and walked home later.
    Day 68 – swim 2.6 km in 54 minutes and walked wombat later 2.3 km in 32 minutes
    Day 69 – 2 Mike swim in 68 minutes, slow but done. Wombat and I went for a walk  later 2.4 km in 36 minutes
    Day 70 – 3 km swim in 62 minutes

    Day 71 – eMtb ride 32.4 km in 2 hours, brilliant technical ride, great feeling to be outdoors again and I was layered up for the.conditions (but maybe not), temp was -1 to 0 and I’ve ridden loads in colder temps. But after this I fell really unwell, bloody cold and exhausted really quickly. Slept for 18 hours dressed in arctic survival clothing with a hat. Have I just been super unlucky with some random bug and the cold or is this mild hypothermia? Either way total pita.
    Day 72 – will be a very slow walk with wombat.
