The Trophy Cabinet…

trophy

Below are all the trophies that i’ve collected using Strava, Zwift challenges and achievements and other things as well.

Collecting Strava trophies is like train spotting only you get really fit doing it, and the Zwift challenges and achievements are likewise – you have to work your butt off to achieve these things.

Jump on board, open a Strava and Zwift account and start building your own collection and enjoy all those health and fitness benefits at the same time – what’s not to like?

Best wishes.

Zwift Level 25…

Yesterday i got to level 25 on Zwift and received a green and yellow outfit. All that work for a yucky green and yellow outfit. But i also got the Tron Bike for the 50,000 meter climbing challenge, so that makes up a bit for the yucky coloured kit…

And sadly that’s all the levels that Zwift have at the moment. It’s taken me 7 1/2 months to get to level 25, which requires 5500 km of riding, so haven’t done too bad me thinks.

Looking forward to Zwift adding more levels soon and more bikes, wheels, etc., to grab for them. In the meanwhile i have the Tour Italy challenge to finish to get the Pinarello Dogma bike

My Fastest Ever 56 Miles…

My fastest ever 56 mile TT while riding on Zwift’s London Flat course…

Was on Zwift TT bike with Zipp 808’s. Just a tiny bit outside the top 40% which i’m very pleased with for my age and weight. 😀

It starts approx at the sprint banner to give a little warm up.

My Fastest 100km Ever…

My fastest 100km TT on Zwift’s Volcano Flat course……

On the Cervelo S5 bike with Zipp 808 wheels. It’s not exactly the most interesting route, but it’s not too bad. And nicely inside the top 50%, so fairly happy with that for my age and weight.

It starts a bit further along from the start banner to give a chance for a little warm up.

My Fastest 40km…

My fastest ever 40km on Zwift Richmond Flat route…

In the top 50% the leader board, which i don’t think is too bad for a 52 year old who only weighs 111 lb on such a flat course.

Was on Zwift TT bike with Zipp 808’s.

It starts a bit further around from the start banner to give a chance for a little warm up.

Lowest Blood Pressure…

My latest blood pressure measurement – not bad for a 52 year old…

Lowest Average Heart Rate…

Got my lowest ever average heart rate reading this morning – nearly 0.90 bpm lower than my previous best. In fact this is by far my best heart morning ever. Not only in a 5 min average, but it’s only 0.01 bpm faster in a 15 min average, while my systolic BP is equal to my lowest at 98 but this time with a 45 bpm HR instead of 53 bpm when it was preciously 98.

So for a 52 year old who spent many years of my life as a heavy drinking, drug using, crap eating, smoker i think i’m doing pretty well. Just goes to show that your health, fitness and wellbeing are always a choice – you just need to chose…

Zwift Level 22…

Yesterday i got to level 22 on Zwift and received a shiny new Canyon Aeroad bike and also completed the Rapha Rising Mission for the nice blue Rapha Flyweight Kit in Zwift and also got entered into a draw for a set in the real world (a good day at the office)…

Now i’ve got 300km to ride to level 23 for a set of Enve SES 6.7 wheels.
