Another disaster of a month

So much for this months goals - I'd estimate I'm up on 180km at the moment on the cycling challenge and I've done nothing towards the running goals. I went out tonight for a run, deciding to go back to the Couch to 5km program. I decided to have a go at week three (5 mins warmup + 2 x (90s jog + 90s walk + 3m jog + 3m walk)) and I didn't complete the final 3m non-stop due to a stitch! Depressing!

Anyhow, plan is to restart this months cycling goal next month and finish the C25K (or at least make progress on it).

I'm already four days behind on my cycling challenge for the month - not a great start. Various reasons during the work week, but I really don't have an excuse for not pulling some miles back today - sheer laziness. Next week isn't looking great either but 1000km is still the aim.

On a related note, I've bought a new bike - Giant TCR 0 (2011). I was considering a Giant Defy 3 (2010) which was full carbon, but I tried both and was really impressed by the TCR. I still have to wait for the cycle-to-work formalities to go through, before picking it up, but hopefully I'll have it all sorted before the end of June.
