Latest duathlon update, been suggested we use off road shoes or maybe spikes, not sure where mine are but could be entertaining

Well this white stuff everywhere outside seems to have put pay to my planned 70 miler! I feel a morning of the turbo and Star Wars coming on!

I know, I know ..... i'm going away for easter and it was the only opportunity I had

I'm back.  Did you miss me?  No, I thought not.

Fuertaventura was hot, windy and a bit hilly so it was good practice for Lanza. I'm not sure how we practice for descending in cross winds but that was certainly a feature.  Also, the wind accompanying the heat really ensures you find the bits that you miss with your sunscreen.

I think electrolytes are going to be an important feature for our race too.  It really was very hot.  Don't forget to drink on the bike, or you will be caught out.

Now I have sunburn and frostbite all at the same time.  Groovy.

Only four weeks until we can start tapering.........

nowhere near where I was last year, (I'll start the sand bagging now....) but managed to crank out a 6 hr ride today..... 
starting to get some endurance back slowly - its better late than never.

I think the 3 degree weather today is ideal preparation for 25 degree heat


oh yeah, mouse - I forgot to mention the x-winds on the decents.  If the wind is in the usual direction you only get them in a few places in lanza....
however if the wind is from another unexpected direction... uh oh

I had 1 really awful x wind incident a couple of weeks ago on lanxa - femes to playa blanka - 40 kph and a massive speed wobble - so bad I could not take my hands of the handlebars to change up gears....
Made me seriously think about which wheels to take.......
