Nursey .. for long bike rides use a turbo as a last resort and not a first resort 


Nice couple of hours out on the road bike this morning, race bike now cleaned and put away, roads were like a cross country track after last nights rain .. one 'P' to content with a lot of swearing getting the feckin tyre back on

Perfect day for cycling here - clear, blue skies, sunshine, dry roads.  
Unfortunately, wee man has been to see the doctor this morning and is now on antibiotics and steroids for a grotty chest, so we are cuddled up on the sofa watching tv.

Boys... Not sure what to say, it certainly did put my vintage Colnago hand painted frame into perspective - I'll keep it in my dreams, along with the alu deep section mirror finish rims, campag chorus chainset, a matching Colnago saddle, and some custom bull bars and levers

Had a totally decadent weekend -- curry, beer, wine, cake.  Tres naughty, back to being a Good Boy tomorrow.  Still, surprised to find myself lighter than I have been for 15 years!

First week of proper training done.
Big ride yesterday before the weather gets crap

I feel shaterred. Achy ankles, lethargic legs... Arms and shoulders know about the ride as well.
Unfortunatley i have a bike in/part run home commute followed by a swim tonight

Got to get up and get it done.
speed doesnt matter, just keeping on going despite being tired

Who put my rest day on a Friday?

Morning All,

Out running before 6am again, great way to start the week. Ended up running 40 miles last week, not bad for the off season and my first full week back in training.
Throwing myself into this, is good for keeping me sane.

22/10/2012 at 09:07

jesus. 40 miles sounds like lots. im getting to about 18-20, but 40, in the off season. damn

and what about bike and getting wet ?

starting to look like a job this going long lark

swimming was two hours, and the bike was just an hour.

Nice going Holgs.

Your training is a little more impressive than mine.  My training for last week consisted of a ride on Sat and a ride on Sun, from my house 1 mile down to the local pub to pick the car up from the night before
