Blimey is this a witchhunt! Theres some very judgemental people on here, sorry to disappoint but simple answer was I was busy yesterday with work, school runs etc.
I am fully aware of the amount of training needed, hence starting 3 weeks ago, well 4 as I included the great north run as part of my training.
Oh and I agree on the experience on here comment.
Train, train, train, I get it. I presume we all have our own little mottos, or sayings to keep us going on those cold dark sunday mornings at 8am on a bike or running. Mine is Better Never Stops and I always remember this when struggling.
I actually thought in the winter people put their road bikes away hence the mountain bike sessions.
