At the moment I’m feeling a little overloaded with a bunch of stuff. This is causing a lull on the social side of things. More serious socialising will mostly have to wait until later this month. In the mean time, I’m trying to get back into shape, and would like to add a social aspect to training.
The first thing on my sporting calendar is the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour. I don’t know what to expect, being in rather bad shape. If I didn’t have a thesis gut, I’d feel quite confident about aiming for a sub 3:10, achieved by dreaming about a sub 3:00. (What a dream.) As it is, I’d ideally like to drop 5kg in the next 5 weeks. Not quite realistic, but the point is I’ve got to do a lot of cycling. I’m trying to train six times a week. Once I get work and thesis defence out of the way, I could even do more than one session per day.
This post is an invitation to any sports-people that might be reading this. If you are interested in joining me for a road cycle or a mountain bike outing, let me know. I’m living somewhere between Somerset West and Stellenbosch. In between I’m doing some running as well. We have an informal little Stellenbosch Trail Runners group, currently organising via Facebook. We’re currently doing a weekly run. (Thanks to Pieter for organising!) Again, let me know if you’re interested.
