    Late to the party, but hi all - I'm aiming for 80-100 miles commuting per week - I've just restarted for this year, building up towards 5 days a week (this week intended to be my first 5 of the year)

    So far this month:

    Wed 04/05/16 20.00
    Fri 06/05/16 20.00
    Mon 09/05/16 20.00
    Wed 11/05/16 20.00
    Fri 13/05/16 20.00
    Mon 16/05/16 20.00
    Tue 17/05/16 20.00
    Thu 19/05/16 20.00
    Fri 20/05/16 20.00
    Mon 23/05/16 20.00

    Total to yesterday = 200 miles

    All of those 20s are comprised of 9.33 outward loop and 10.67 home - the round total is just a coincidence

    4/5 5.7 miles outdoor Pitfield Lane
    5/5 12.88 outdoor Tadley rec ground
    6/5 10.5 outdoor Padworth church circuit
    9/5 7.5 indoor
    10/5 10indoor
    11/5 8.5 outdoor
    13/5 7.9 outdoor

    "Photographing surrounding churches challenge" still going as well - here's the one in Beech Hill which is a church on Sunday and a community shop and cafe in the week. Plus my partner with his new huge wheeled bike. Looking a bit smug because he is faster.

    Distances include cycling + walking
    March: 489.8 km (304.3 miles) = 38 hours 4 min

    Dec: 499.91 km (282.8 miles) = 54 hours 56 min
    Jan: 864.79 km (537.35 miles) = 65 hours 36 min
    Feb: 470.53 km (292.4 miles) = 40 hours 39 min
    March: 917.73 km (570.2 miles) = 66 hours 13 min
    April: 417.83 km (259.6 miles) = 40 hours 23 min

    April wasn't a brilliant month for me in terms of exercise ... I had hoped to do one or two longer bicycle rides but sometimes life intervenes in the plans. April ended up being an incredibly busy month with a heavier-than-usual workload at work + assignments due at university + the final steps of my citizenship process. I wrote the citizenship exam and then my ceremony was on April 29 and I am now officially an Australian Citizen! :):)

    May should be a calmer month, although I will be wrapping up the uni course I'm in so there will be work to do for that. Nevertheless, I hope for more kilometres than last May. :)
