September Training Update & A BIG Anniversary!

Another great month even if the training has subsided somewhat... Always difficult to maintain with no event to train for. Our coast to coast bike ride has so far raised an amazing £1,845! Roughly £10 for every mile cycled with a bit more to come in from the good folk at Gimblet Rock caravan site! Thanks all!!!

 Karen and I also celebrated our Silver Wedding anniversary in style with 10 days in the Seychelles which was absolute bliss! We took our gym and running gear with us but I think there was never any real intention of using it with a well earned rest taking it's rightful place!

So, training excuses done here's a summary of the September training! :-)...
02/09/12 ~ 14mile cycle sprint around Sandbach averaging 18.7mph in 45mins 37secs
