One of my unknowns before setting out on this #Festive500 thing was the consecutive mileage. Whilst I am happy with a one day sportive and also manage to do 50km a day, everyday for my commute, I was not sure about the pulling off a large amount of mileage in such a short space of time. The first four days at least allow me to have some initial days off to break myself in; I can ride the first day, the Christmas Day is definitely a no-no, then ride on Boxing Day and then a rest day with Church and friends. after that it’s open season to finish off whatever remains of the 500km. So far this has worked; when I got on the bike this morning I felt great, no tiredness or fatigue (other than the time I was leaving the house) and so felt really positive that this is going to be achievable; weather permitting.
I’ve not really had a chance or time to delve into my faith at all, but today has been truly amazing day. As you know it is Easter Sunday and I had the huge privilege to baptise my eldest son this morning.
Made by her own fair hand too; what more could a husband ask for?
