It's been a while now and to be honest progress has stalled a bit on the training. A new job, a new love and house hunting has left not much free time for the training schedule..
Weight wise I've sat at about 80kg now for some time so no great additional wins but no losses either. The next month is going to have to be pretty big or this little chicken is going to hurt for all to hear.

The training schedule kicks back off again this Sunday which will give me almost exactly 4 weeks to see what I can do.

The major part of my schedule will consist of daily rides around what Ant and I have come to call the four points, that is

Neutral bay to the spit via Mosman
The Spit (Parrawi rd) to Balmoral
Balmoral to Middle head
Middle head to Bradleys Head
Then off for a coffee at Kirrabilli

The whole circuit is only about 25km and takes about an hour, the hills are substantial though and make for a great work out.
My biggest fear is saddle soreness which I know you only get over by staying in the saddle for long periods.

I find saddle soreness is reduced by getting out of the saddle for longer periods. That's the best thing about riding uphill.

Glad to see you are taking my advice on riding those hills to beat fat-bastarditis. [Not that at 80kg you could be called fat. Unless you are very short!]

Calendula cream is good for bum soreness. I have also heard of people using nappy rash cream.

Well Neil, I am a bit short :)

I was given a sample pack of Aussie Butt Cream recently, and while it won't help with bum bruising type soreness too much, it's great for chafing / saddle sores etc.

The most noticeable thing about it is Tea Tree oil which is awesome for just about everything.

Worth a shot.

(disclaimer, I was given some of the product to try and I'm in discussions with them about sponsorship / giveaways on the site..... I still think it's good stuff and I've been using it).

Happy to be a test case

Discaimer: If it works :)

Hi David, good to see you back in the saddle. I recommend doing Parrawi Rd twice. Only takes a couple of minutes and its such a nice view. A nice view is well, so nice. Only thing better is to photograph one. On another note I have a "new" bike. Show you soon. Ant
