Over the past few weeks I have been following a light spring training programme and so far this month have totalled 32.8 mies – so quite pleased. I will be increasing the schedule in May, hoping to get the required saddle fitness for doing some multi-day trekking. The first trip I am hoping for is a tour around Mull, including a non religious visit to Iona. I managed 12.9 miles to-day on my new bike, a GT GTR Series 4 2011 and felt absolutely clapped out – too much too soon! I should have left the longer session till next week.
