Gently does it for the New Year!

The Jimmy Duffy and some North Kerry Villages. I for one didn't escape the colds and flu plaguing the good citizens of County Kerry this winter, so my New Years cycling and walking exploits got off to a slow start. Throw into the equation the fact that the weather is starting to finally act like winter, motivation is the key here in Ireland at the moment. [...]

Today was day 15 and my legs were extremely tired both off the bike and on the bike. I took it as easy as possible to try and get some recovery into them before next week's cycles. I headed off at a very leisurely pace towards The Kerries, Blennerville, Ballyard and back home. I finished up with a handy 10 miles on my mountain bike in a time that I would normally do 20 on a racing bike but I hope that the recovery day will do me good. Half Way on the 30 day challenge an the following are my stats so far... Miles Cycled: 298.85 Time on the [...]
