Of course, it could never last, a unbroken run of nearly 5 months without any illness related time off the bike. Well, that run came to an end, abruptly in February with not one but two YAFFs kicking MMT’s proverbial butt.
The first YAFF was minor cold and inconvenience. The second YAFF was a proper flu, that meant 2 days off work and so far 5 days off the bike….booooo!!!!. These absences can be clearly in MMT’s monthly worm and Strava hurt numbers. Also the second YAFF meant missing a fairly entertaining, by all accounts, Greek Wedding.
Considering that MMT had nearly 370km in the bag by the 12th Feb, only to total 652km, this was extremely disappointing. MMT is starting to feel the mental pressure of his weekly target of 145Km. This monthly total meant that he only accumulated an extra 26km on his overall ‘lead’. MMT is now wondering whether 7500km in a year is possible, given he’s committed to 2 overseas holidays and Christmas in Sydney this year. Hmmmm…..
The Strava Suffer score graph is still showing that Thursday and Saturday are the days MMT is out doing hard work.
Probably the only thing of any note, was that MMT, managed to take his gorgeous 20 month old, half pint daughter out on his bubba carrier Cannondale. These short trips have only been a couple of km, but have been immensely enjoyable.
Until next time, ride safe.
