    that's great news! Good luck!

    Physical therapy was good yesterday. Therapist said no swimming or any cardio for now, although walking in the pool is authorized, so that's all I'm allowed for now.

    that sucks, thought swimming would be ok they let anyone do that!

    weighed in the same as last week but I have lost weight its just been replaced with muscle as can see I am leaner. Into my most intensive period now upping the RPM classes to two a week now (the local fitness centre is supporting my event so I get them free)

    Must admit its all a bit draining, mentally as much as physically but with only a couple of weeks to go the end is in sight. Im keen to get on with the challenge itself even though I know it will be hellish at the time!

    I'm going to a new physcial therapy place tomorrow, mainly because they have evening appointments so I won't have to take a whole day of vacation time for a one hour appointment. I'm not really sold on the new place, but we'll see. I'm going to finish the current round of physical therapy and do my follow up appointment with the doctor and then see where it goes from there.

    Good luck on your preperations for the upcoming race! You've slimmed down a lot and look great from the last pics I saw on FB. Don't beat yourself up over a few pounds here and there.

    Hope you get sorted VC.

    Weighed in this morning with a 3lb drop, puts me at my lightest since November but with the muscle gain I am in better shape.
    Did just over 142 miles last week plus a couple of RPM classes. In fact yesterday did an RPM class then went out in the afteroon and did 45 miles on the mtb including some 17-20% climbs. Legs were aching but still had some in the tank so that was a good sign.
    I am now tapering down in my final 10 days. Will do my usual 30m tonight, RPM on Tuesday then going to head up to the trails at Dalby on Wednesday. Only doing a single lap (though it is 23 miles long!). Will be aiming for a sub 2hr, did 2hr 6 mins last week (but as part of a double lap) and I will be going packless this time so I am hoping losing about 3 stone off my back will speed things up!!

    Started looking at the weather forecast for the event. For the next week its pretty much raining non-stop which isnt good. If its dry on the day that will help but a drier trail would be much easier. Main thing is the prevailing wind statys in place. Dont fancy 96 miles into a head wind!

    Final race of the year done. A tough one up in the Scottish Hills. Was only 52 miles though was planned to be 67m but due to really bad ground coniditions they had to adjust. was barely above freezing so couldnt feel my toes throughout the 4+ hours of riding. Despite that the sun was shining and it was a glorious vista in the middle of nowhere (Galloway area is a certified dark skies place). Mud was really thick in places sometimes over 10" deep and tough to ride through and so the pace was slower than last year.
    However I did come 23rd out of 244 riders so I am happy with that especially considering my lack of fitness at the moment.
    No more races until February now (a 50 mile one at night off road over the moors!) so Ill have a rest now and just do some casual riding until Xmas then come back to training proper after that. My fitness levels are certainly higher in general this year than last so I hope I can push on more next year. Its been a long year of riding, 10 months of training plus 8 big events. I never thought this time last year I would be able to ride 123 miles off road at once or do a 16+ hour ride solo but I did and I love pushing my boundries. Body may be aging but the mind keep rolling along!!
