A New Reality – Lockdown Wk2 – Days 6 & 7

Hurrah, another weekend at home adapting to our new normal.  On Saturday this meant that the Hubster whizzed around the house cleaning windows, dusting, clearing weeds from the garden, doing washing etc.  Since it's not something he does much of normally, I kept out of his way.
After three weeks of reduced exercise, and jumping on the scales to realise that I have gained 1/2 stone, I knew that I needed to pull my finger out and start recreating my daily exercise habit.
One problem though is that I am now sharing the turbo trainer with the Hubster. 

A New Reality – Lockdown Wk2 Day 4

Humans were designed to be social animals, and so for some of us this lockdown has forced us to consider how we communicate with each other.
For some of the introverts out there, a lockdown is quite good news. They no longer need to interact with people unless they want to. But for the rest of us, there is a very real risk of loneliness setting in. We thrive with human contact, and when we can't have adult conversations with people then it's hard.

A New Reality – Lockdown Wk1 Days 6 & 7

With home now being where we work, rest and play we've found it important to create a break between the working week and the weekend so that all the days don't just merge into each other and create some kind of alternate Groundhog Day. So on Friday, work was shut down, the doors to the 'offices' were closed and we settled into our weekend routine. On Saturday I would normally go for a long bike ride and at this point in my training, most likely would have been riding for most of the weekend, and through the night. But, this is not a normal Saturday.......

A New Reality – Lockdown Wk 1 Day 3

Since this is a cycling blog, after yesterday' distractions in watching how my local community were keeping themselves entertained during the lockdown, I am returning to the subject of exercise with a focus on cycling in particular....
The Government has decided that during this lockdown, they still want the country to be able to get some exercise outside - hurrah!. But, we are restricted in how we can do this.....
But what does this mean in practice?

A New Reality – Lockdown. Wk1, Day 1

Well that’s that then, lockdown! If was never really a question of IF it would happen, but more a case of WHEN and how extensive. Clearly all the warnings last week about social distancing, and how it meant 6ft or 2 metres apart, had little impact. With a sunny weekend, Mother's Day, the Government telling us it was ok to exercise, and all leisure activities, cafes, bars & restaurants closed, it was a balls up waiting to happen. But boy did we fuck it up!

Train like a woman

When it comes to sports-related training and research, it’s fair to say that most studies are based around the male physiology. The results are then used to influence training methods for both men and women equally as if women are built the same, just smaller versions.
However, there is one woman shouting from the rooftops that this is wrong...
