In 2017 Andy, from Lancashire (England), is aiming to complete an Audax Super Randonneur Series (200km, 300km, 400km & 600km Audax rides) and the London Edinburgh London (2017) 1,400km Audax randonnee event (time-limit 116hrs & 40min).


How Andy Trains:

Sunday: Evening Gym Session (1.5 Hrs). Cardio Workout (Eliptical/Runing Machine) then Kettle Weights and Free Weights. With an ad-hoc 10 mile / half marathon run whenever an event I want to do is in the callendar.

Monday: High intensity ElliptiGO work commute (26-miles total).

Tuesday: Evening Gym Session (1.5 Hrs). Cardio Workout then Kettle Weights and Free Weights.

Wednesday: High intensity ElliptiGO work commute (26-miles total).

Thursday: Evening Gym Session (1.5 Hrs). Cardio Workout then Kettle Weights and Free Weights.

Friday: High intensity ElliptiGO work commute (26-miles total).

Saturday:  Morning 5K Parkrun, Afternoon Swim session.

This is how I am training for the London – Edinburgh – London in July 2017, amongst other challenges. In September of 2016 I decided to complement my ElliptiGO Training by running the Saturday Morning Parkruns, whilst my two children played hockey.

Also, as the weather here in the UK can be rather cold, wet and dark on the daily commute in Winter, I changed my Cardio Workout to the more pleasent surrounding of the local Gym.


Training objectives:

1) Improve my overall stamina for long-distance EllipiGO Events.

2) Develop a nutritional strategy that would provide the fuel for objective 1.

3) Become an all-round, healthy athelete.


Personal Information:

In a relationship with Sharron – and I have two daughters (10 yrs) and (7Yrs). Sharron’s children are 15 & 10.
