thanks for that link.
I am on 28mm conti GP 4 seasons so no worries. I just need a motor to help me up it.
Did 1k of mudbath / farm track today following my garmin on nav mode - I should have gone around it but....
anyway, training is up / down over the last few weeks did 2 * 100 milers (165 / 175k) over easter and my first 200k ride today (ok 220k ) back out tomorrow
i also swam once (a whole 1k) and ran 2*5ks - game on for austria
Just updated the blog - even added a few pictures from Lanza
Just did a big week in Lanza, ( 160k, 150k, 150k, 150k, 100k, 180k, 0, 140k)Had another 5 days planned but ended up having a holiday with the missus instead (or was that a recovery week???)
Feel good to go again.
Issues:- Still need to way more time route planning. I am up to albania, and need to revisit / additionally re-plan the route so far where shops / garages / hotels are etc etc etcIt takes time
Ordered a set of wheels with a SON dynamo front hub. expensive but I need them.Lanza bike experience suggests I need to keep the volume of kit down - its hard uphill with stuff
IM austria prep, (the warmup) - Need time to sort my calves out - keep tweaking them running, rest 2 weeks, run another then twang. I need to strengthen them / actually do some roller work on them
Swam more last week than the whole year so far. need to cram 2 swims a week in - I currently swim once a week
I start swimming (again) next week
I've swum twice all winter
Calf is a bit broken
I feel rubbish, and have done for the last 2 weeks, (throat, chest etc etc)
Its going well!
