May 2022 Roundup: My lowest mileage month

Five months of 2022 down! How have you been keeping? May has been the lowest mileage month I’ve logged since mid 2020. A combination of factors have kept me from riding as many miles (or kilometres) as I would have liked, but my fitness and form are still progressing in the right direction. The beginning…

Running! Who dis?

If you follow me on Strava, you may have seen I’ve posted a couple of runs recently. Was I being chased? Are my bikes broken? Are your eyes playing tricks on you? No, I actually did run. You may also think that I simply went out and ran 5km no worries, but that is very,…
