Bicycle Tour, Fitness Tips

Bicycle Training: Week 5 – 6

The first six weeks of bicycle training is officially (not entirely) complete. These last two weeks were supposed to be a step up from our first month. Things didn’t exactly go according to plan…The goal was to complete 120 – 140km in a week. One maximum ride which is 60 – 80km and the rest throughout the week. Below you will find all the details but if you want to get updates as it happens, follow my Instagram page. There I share all of our routes.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about follow this link https://fitcouchpotato.com/2017/08/10/challenge-3000km-bicycle-tour/ to catch up, but I will sum it up briefly. The plan is to cycle the Netherlands in May 2018. Approximately 3235,4km. 100km in 31 days. 145 towns. If you want to see how our first four weeks in bicycle training went than follow this link: https://fitcouchpotato.com/2017/08/10/bicycle-training-week-1-4/

week 5

Week 5 was looking very promising. We never skipped a beat with our bicycle training in the week. We hit new personal bests and I couldn’t be more proud with our progress. We planned to do our maximum bicycle ride on Sunday but I woke up to a sick husband. As we train together I didn’t exactly want to go for a ride without him. That and it wouldn’t be right to leave the poor man alone.

Monday: 10,4km

Tuesday: 16,8km

Thursday: 15,3km

Friday: 20,6km

Total: 63,1km

 

week 6

This week we had no choice but to hold our bicycle training. Things were looking up somewhere in the middle. On Wednesday Onno looked one day away from a clear bill of health and we were quick to plan a ride for the following day. One ride is better than nothing right? However life had other plans. I woke up sick and the rest of the week it was my turn to wallow in self pity with a snotty nose and sore throat. It was a difficult decision to halt our training. I knew it would mess with our schedule but forcing my body in such a brutal activity would only make things worse. I’m already working hard to compensate for our time off to ensure our end goal is still possible. It’s not the end of the world.

We will make it work.
