Day 10: One of the things I've thought about on each day's stages is food. I'm pretty rubbish at eating the right food before playing sport, I'm normally in the Usain Bolt camp of pre-match meal (he famously admitted eating chicken nuggets before winning Olympic gold) and would rather have a mars bar instead of a protein shake Davina Mccall might drink. Then again I haven't seen the Swedish womens handball team anywhere soon so maybe the chicken nugget routine isn't all it's cracked up to be. Suffice to say I had a mars bar for lunch today.
Day 9: Tough day today, very windy, very hilly, very long 83 miles to Inverness.
I notice everyone's back at work today, blog page views have rocketed!!
Don't worry I won't tell Vince...
I think only about 120 miles to go :)
Today was also a sad day as I bid farewell to my shorts in an attempt to lose some more weight. We always knew this was the end of the line for them but nevertheless I was still disappointed for them as I know how much they wanted to get to the top.
Today's Top Gear Bank Holiday special was for my best mate Owen (who drove up from Peterboro to Loch Lomond to wish me well, two days after flying back from Sydney) to drive the 86 miles to Fort William while I cycled. Surprisingly Owen won by 7 light years (I still bought him a cup of tea)
You know I talked about Everest the other day? I'm now above it.
