Fat Lad’s March

Welcome back dear pedalling fanatics and appreciators of the word ‘Feck’ to another exciting thrilling and rip-roaring monthly round up of this Chunky Cyclists world. This particular episode is brought to you from the gorgeous Scourie Bay and was powered by far too much gorgeous fresh sea food and a fat man’s bodyweight in chocolate.

Running Goal – To run at lease once a week

We were due to be moving Casa Fat Lad to a new location the week before our holiday. It didn’t happen. We’re still fecking livid truth be told. Our new landlord promised the building works would be completed on said date, to be fair he was right; the building part had been finished. It was just the plumbing, wiring and decorating part that had yet to be completed. With a straight face he told us “you could still move in though…” Anyways, the upshot is that I still managed to get a few runs in but not as many as the C25K plan would have liked me to. When this is written I’m going for a run down to the jetty and back, which should be nice 🙂  – it was though it hurt a bit

Riding – To Ride 2000 MTB Miles in the Year

Well, this is turning into a right cluster-feck. For March I needed to pedal 176.33 miles to get back on target. Drum roll please: 64.25 miles was accomplished. Yeah one or two short I notice. Packing a house up ready for a move that didn’t happen are the mitigating circumstances this time round. So, for April and the remaining months I need to do a minimum of… 188.79 miles. As a child would say: Easy peasy lemon squeezy. *Ahem *


Let’s see just about one run a week, only 64.25 miles ridden and a week spent mostly doing bugger all and eating loads. I dare not jump on the scales for fear of the resultant localised seismic activity.

Twitter Rides

Stu one of the bad brains fairly regulars punished me in the stunning Lakes. A write up shall follow soon. Also I was going to use the @mrsfatlad twitter ride Joker card for April but well, you’ll see all about that in the next post…
