The talking is over and we are now both signed up to the Norwich50 on June 5. Next step is to work out how to train for it.

My starting point is pretty low – I do have some lycra, and a cycle helmet and a yellow reflective jacket.

Standard cycle distance to work – around 4 miles. Last time achieved, early January.

Latest bike ride to the park – where I ran 3 laps (I call that cross training).

Time to get organised.
