Exercise Stats

21 days featured a ride on the bike, for a total of 32h45min,

Average speed 14.8 mph

Miles Rode 483.57 (only 105.30 of which being indoor miles)

Calories Burned 32,306 ( or the equivalent of  9.23lb of fat! – Once again, I’ve been eating some of the calories back.   I’ve also amended the calorie burn figures using a couple of handy power calculation plugins in Sportstrack3, which take the existing speed, incline and HR data from the Garmin, add in weather details (i.e. wind speed and direction) and muscle efficiency data factor and come up with a power output.   This it then used to provide a more accurate calorie information – one that is substantially lower than the figures calculated by the garmin – hence the greatly reduced burn figure this month.

Did well on the riding front, good mileage, if a little less than the prior month – the cold took it’s toll early doors,  but since then I’ve been able to stay mainly on the road and off the trainer, hence the reduced average speed.   And – I finally cracked the 20 stone mark.   Next goal – 17 stone – or 238lb for the former colonials 107.5kg for the continentals.
