Very tempted by the Pyrenees Gul - beautiful place but a heck of a commute.
Careful with that ankle Leslie.
Been on the good old "pick up offspring and all their stuff from uni" trip today. Tiring drive.
Managed to put 2lb on last week. Surprised with the effort level but body fat had dropped from 8.9% to 7.3% so I suspect I have buffed up a bit. Thighs of steel! Last big week of training coming up so need to squeeze sessions in alongside catching up with work and reinvesting in family brownie points. Looking forward to taper time.
Woke up in France to the news this morning - very disappointed but realise it's a personal thing and sections of the population have spoken. Might move to Scotland! Only a few miles up the road!
In other news:
Day 5 of Raid Pyrenees done! Fin! Coast to coast of France across the most beautiful mountains and valleys.
80 miles of fast riding today starting with an incredible descent with sweeping bends then a hard push through the heat to the coast. The last two days have given me a real appreciation of the art of descending - weight back and through the feet, ar5e 2mm off the seat, hands loose and relaxed and tilt into the bends - incredible sense of speed and control. Highly addictive.
Amazing to get to the med and have a beer!
Epic week - utterly brilliant
Dived into the sea and have been on the beer all afternoon after being on the redline every day this week - brill.
