All the best for the new year all. Time to get stuck into training again for this years Gibb River Challenge through the Kimberley http://www.thegibbchallenge.net.au/ .
So, back on the road bike next week. I have been getting into running and swimming over christmas break instead of chocolates and shortbread like normal. I had forgotten how much i enjoy running. It was hard to get started, but i have lost 10 kg’s since october, so it is working out well. Sitting at 87kg’s at the moment and think 75 would be good target weight for the Gibb, unless i start losing too much off my legs, then may adjust that. Will be doing the 24 hour mountain bike race on January 22nd, this will be my first endurance event for a year. We won the 4 man team section of it last year, doing it solo this time will be interesting. Will give me an idea of how i am travelling. The first day of the Gibb challenge is 220 km’s so this will be a make or break day. If i survive that, i can go all week. Mate, have i got some work to do between now and May :-0 will try and keep this updated more regular.
