Another Bike Ride

Decided to do another bike ride yesterday after missing the club run on the chase (again!). I went fairly hard again and did it in a new best of 49.27 on the usual 14.5 mile lap.

Over the last couple of days I was thinking what sort of targets I should set myself for the year ahead. It's more difficult than it seems at first as no two orienteering races are the same. I've since settled for (in no particular order):
1) Sub 13 min run on the Mungo Bone.
2) Sub 36 mins for a 10k road race.
3) Cycle sub 48 mins on my 14.5 mile lap.
4) Improve upon my average cross-country position of 59th.

If I can get anywhere near these targets it will stand me in good stead when it comes to the orienteering.

I'm in the process of buying a house in Tamworth and I am thinking about the logistics of cycling to/from work in Birmingham from May onwards - it would be 36 miles a day, 180 a week which would be superb training, plus the added bonus of it being free! Not sure whether I'm letting my imagination get the better of me though! But if I could do that, plus one or two gym sessions a week I should be able to get into serious shape pretty quickly.
