What's the location by the way?
I am in London, its starting in Croydon on April 1st.
I have a few questions if you don't mind Whelo...
My level of fitness is not great and my diet is similar to that of a three year old sugar addict, I'm 6'4 and about 16 stone. Can you tell me a bit about the nutrition side of things. Will I need to be stocking up on supplements? I am fussy around some foods, mainly veg. Do they give you a meal plan to follow? If so, how strict is it?
I have worked out that to get there for 6am I will need to be up and out of bed at 5am and out the door by 5:15am. Its a 35 min cycle to the gym. Following a session I will be going to work, that will be another 45-55 mins on the bike. Would I be able to cycle for about an hour after the sessions, esp at the start when my body will be getting used to it. My fear is that I may gas out (Ive got the lingo part sorted haha) so to speak on the cycle to work after an intense session!?
My social life revolves around having a few drinks, usually on the weekends but the odd post work drink during the week. How did you find W2W affecting your social life? I have a few things coming up this year that will mean missing one or two sessions, Slane and Download being two weekends away that would usually be booze filled weekends. Did you find that your mindset changed around drinking? Did you find it easier to moderate drinking? Not saying you're an alcoholic or anything, Im not, but I can easily put away 6-8 pints on a good night which I know would be detrimental to any type of training, the will power is weak on this one for me!! I would like to be able to enjoy a couple of beers and then be able to head home instead of staying out and filling up on beer!
Anyways that's all I have for now, apologies its a lot haha!! I am going to try to convince a mate of mine here to do it with me, I think it would be best to have a buddy to help encourage each other!
