Thursdays Thrifty Fifty

With further heavy snow forecast for this Saturday, I was concerned that my ambitions to maintain and increase my weekly mileage might be severely compromised.

So instead of sulking I took the day off work and headed for the seaside.
Despite being bitterly cold it was a nice fast run and I broke through the 50 miles mark for for the first time this year.

Two years ago I would have been overjoyed at such an achievement but 50 miles became a routine training ride last summer. Never mind it is progress and if the snow holds off I may get over 100 miles in for the week. I am planning to venture onto the North Yorkshire Moors on Sunday weather permitting. Should be able to get some great photos as I am joined by my old training buddy Simon who might be coerced into being a Cameraman
I'm really looking forward to those 25% gradients.

Wow, 25% is pretty steep. Good Luck!

I'm sure that I'd be pushing my bike up those hills. It sounds like its time to install a granny gear.
