Re: Fat Fighters 2021

I'm lucky in that my body hasn't betrayed me of late, so I've been able to keep the activity up.

I can't even begin to imagine what my calorie intake would need to be to lose weight without it. It wouldn't be pleasant.

Re: Fat Fighters 2021

Some say just go back up to what you think your tdee should be (various calculators) and some have slower or faster calorie builds o...

Doing endless repeats of a 9 mile lap for 24 hrs always seemed to me to be a hellish concept. Doing one lap of an ITT in 24 hrs? :-bd
This is where I am.

I don't mind pushing myself hard, but bollocks to doing it in laps.

Also signed up to this. Looks like I'll be spending a decent amount of time up North this year.

Going to go up a few days early and have a bit of a pootle around.

Hmm, sorry if I came across as casting nasturtiums...
My thinking was that (at least one) previous editions of the YD200 were a) off road, and b) 200km.
Yeah, there was a YD200 that was off-road.

Re: Fat Fighters 2021

Realistically I'm mid to low teens at the moment, but I'm not going to pull out the calipers to check. :lol:

Some muscle striation here and there. Quads, upper chest, delts. Upper abs and obliques showing, lower ones never will due to loose skin. :sad:

I wanted to tour the route a couple of years back, but my riding buddy had a change of plans that meant we couldn't do the whole thing. I've just revisited the idea, but have tagged on riding to and from the start, which takes the total distance up to 535km.
I am a fool.
Meaty.

One of the parking areas is currently being built on so unlikely to be available!
Fair few spots up and down that road too. Not quite as choice as the little areas, but unlikely to be completely full.

Bunch North of the train line too (less than 5 min cycle to the start).

I'll be walking that completely this time. Not taking risks any more.

Re: Another busy summer of BBQ, campfires and litter?

For what it's worth, that headline date just gives them flexibility. Without getting overly political, the odds that this government stops their core voter demographic from heading off to Spain / Greece / France come June... slim to none. I guess there is a possibility that they tie it to being full...
