One Week Down, How’s It Going?
The June100 Cycling Challenge is one week old today. I’m going to highlight some initial stats, some standout performances and (hopefully) some motivational points for those of us that haven’t put massive miles in yet.
You can check out everyone’s performance at any time by visiting the Official June100 Spreadsheet. If you’ve got a login, remember to sign in with you google email address, or just get a new sign-in by using the form here.
I’ll devise some jerseys soon, I promise. But for now, here’s the headline table of June100 performance. If any of this is wrong, let me know and I’ll edit accordingly…
Next time I post an update, I promise it will look better than the one above! But I need to map my own 10.5 mile loop from yesterday.
What’s It All About?
The value of the #June100 was proved to me yesterday, when I got home from an over-eating session with my friend Lee from Presenting Class. The challenge motivated me to get out along the canal and do 2 laps of Hollingworth Lake before coming back home via Milnrow. The weather wasn’t great, it was muddy under my tyres and I was a bit knackered. Normally I’d have settled in front of a recording of Britain’s Got Tosspots and called it a day, but I got myself a bit fitter and I’ll live a bit longer, thanks to the June100.
I’ve noticed my stamina’s improving thanks to the recent rides. I used my gears a lot less last night, staying happily in the top gear on the middle ring most of the way around my loop. So thanks, everyone! You have no idea how much you’re helping me, by joining in my daft challenge! 🙂
Is it helping you at all? How’s about some positive stories from you lot….
