Following on from my post in the Ring of Kerry 2012 Charity cycle thread here, I have commenced my training for my First ever cycle of the Ring of Kerry. I want to participate in the official event in 2013, but have set a target of completing my First Ring of Kerry cycle before Year Ending 2012. I am an optimist btw!
Newbie to racers and this afternoon done 20.5km in 45mins at which point I felt I could continue but time & other commitments made sure it wasn't to be. I have never had so much fun on a bicycle as I did this afternoon and long may that continue! I am happy with that for my first spin and will try to maintain this for a week before upping my game and taking on a more challenging route next week. Surprised myself at my fitness levels, even-though I would be an avid walker/jogger/hill-walker/mountain-climber! Great Bike!
Though it was tough in parts with the climbs and the weather against me - biting wind and rain but peddling on I did and I was happy with a time of 45mins for a 20.5km cycle on my first racer.
Day#2 planned for tomorrow please God! I hope to contine my log on here to maintain & improve my commitment to this newbie on my bucket-list - RoK2013
