Ahem, I *think* Hills are Friends?

I'm training in the flatlands of Suffolk.  The wind yesterday provided a good test and after 66 miles I was completely knackered.

I used to think I was good at biking but IMA and my hope of improving on times set in Florida (2011) and Outlaw (2012) is becoming and increasingly daunting prospect.

Bugger.

I think there might be wibbles in the air this week.  I've been panicking at the lack of training over the last few weeks and the realisation there is just 14 weeks to go. 

But, at the same time, 14 weeks is still enough to turn stuff around so fingers crossed.

I'm not wibbling - but I may be quite close to denial

14 weeks? Yikes!!!!

Approximately 2,317 hours (96 days) or roughly the same amount of time it'll take some of us to cover the 140.6 miles.

Hi Robbie, how's the foot?

Can't make up my mind which sounds best; 14 weeks, 96 days or 2317 hours

96 days definitely sounds worst.  That caused me to clench my ass cheeks.

Hey Trogs - foot still in bad shape. The upside is it hasn't stopped me from cycling. Having withdrawn from VLM, it might help me get my cycling legs back a bit quicker.

Annoyingly physio non-committal with diagnosis and therefore treatment, so it's somewhat of a fingers-crossed kinda situation.

Was looking at Kinetic Revolution website yesterday and there's a section on injury and rehabwhich might be worth a look.
