COMPARISON OF FITNESS PROFILE

I share this information with you not to say “what a good boy am I” but to show clearly how improvement can always be made whether age is a factor or not. Herewith is a Lactate test carried out in 2003, when I was 57 years of age and 29th May 2008 being 5

BACK IN BUSINESS

I have not been blogging for a day or so as Adam has been doing what IT experts do to improve the service, so back we are. I did not attend DISC on Wednesday night as my lactate test was yesterday (more on the lactate test to come) but I understand there was a

ERGO TOMORROW

100 YEARS ON

Talking to John Pritchard on the early morning ride today John told me about his grandfather. John Arthur Pritchard rode the Warrnambool to Melbourne and finished in 1908 and 1910 and John has both of grandad’s Medals for both of these events.
