The Road to PBP – The 600K – nearly there

I had unfinished business with this ride. 4 years earlier this was my first attempt at a 600k, and a massive eye opener with regards to fuelling and sleep deprivation. However, all that aside, I had loved the ride, and the support and organisation made it one of the best Audax events in the calendar, especially if you were a novice like me.

The road to PBP – 400k qualifier and a change of fortunes

Despite having a lovely, but shorter ride in Wales, and knowing I had made the right decision to quite, the old feelings of doubt became to surface.
What if I really am just not good enough? What if just getting there is always going to be this hard? Maybe I really should just give up this dream and go touring instead?
But I had put so much effort in already, and a fair bit of money. I didn’t want to give up just yet....

New Year Resolutions or Good Intentions?

At 51, I am long past making New Years resolutions. After all, they always get broken after a week or two. However, I do like to start each New Year with a fresh start of New Year intentions. There might not seem to be any difference between a Resolution and an Intention, but it’s a psychological difference. A resolution to me says I MUST do something. I either do it or I don’t. And when I falter, then I’ve failed, so what’s the point in continuing. An intention, to me is something that I WANT to do. There isn’t a simple pass or fail criteria. At the end of the determined period of time, success is measured by how much further I am forward than I was at the starting point.
