Mountain Biking Can be Painful

As mentioned in my previous article New Years Resolution (update) I have been trying to get a bit fitter again this year.  Starting with some brisk walks, turning into a bit of jogging and eventually some running, with a bit of MTB thrown in for good measure.  Whilst writing that article it became clear that the MTB had taken a back seat more than I had intended.  So a decision was made to try to get home from work a little early and make amends, this is where the problems began...

New Years Resolution (update)

So, I thought that it was about time to update everyone on my progress this year. Having made a bold statement of intent in my New Years Resolution, was I actually following up with action or had I slipped back to winter comfort foods and cold weather excuses.

New Years Resolution

OMG I have just had the shock of my life, on returning from one of my favourite restaurants, I decided it would be a perfect time to jump onto the scales to asses the damage of the festive season.  As the scales groaned into life it was obvious that there was a problem.  What do you mean no coach parties, that's not polite.

This trip was to be a little different though as I had also allowed some time for a days mountain biking in Dalby forest.

New Shoes

For the last 12-18 months I have been using a pair of DMT RS3 shoes donated by a friend (thanks Gareth) as he couldn't get on with them.  After a couple of rides and a bit of adjustment of cleats and straps I found them to be very comfortable if slightly large for me.  The soles offered a reasonable amount of grip in all but the worst conditions and flexed enough to allow walking for those steep climbs that I should have trained harder for.

Longest Day MTB Challenge

Not sure if any of my regular readers have noticed, but there has been a distinct lack of effort this year.  So far I have competed in 0 events in 2013, and done little training in general.  I'm not quite sure what's going on but I have found many things to blame such as the weather, dark mornings, work and a bunch of other even less believable things.

Always Check Your Equipment

Always check your bike before using it, wise words indeed and you can substitute bike for just about anything, car, chainsaw, climbing equipment etc.
