Man it is getting dark in the mornings, I have enough trouble with cars in the daylight! although I must say most cars and trucks (Thank you Ready Mix Trucks in particular) seem to be very courteous giving me a wide berth in the dark, whether that has anything to do with the fact I potentially look like a Christmas Tree with 3 front lights and 2 back lights I am not sure 🙂
It is the end of February but I am still trying to fit my rides around weekends away with fishing competitions and camping trips every up date seems to be filled with trips or holidays so I didn’t want to disappoint you all.
Le Race is now less than a month away and I must admit earlier on my focus during rides was on Le Race and ensuring I was getting the most out of each session to ensure I was ready for Le Race, but now as I am biking along I find myself thinking about what my next challenge might be; potentially not that great for focusing on the current training session.
After this morning’s ride I am beginning to remember the advantage of multi sport in that every training day is often different with having to complete training for a variety of disciplines where as training for a cycle race it is bike ride after bike ride! One bike ride I decided to play spot the most interesting letterbox, this was my favourite one trying to be different amongst the crowd. Apart from letterbox spotting the smiling assassin (Kate Woods) North Canterbury Group Rides definitely keeps things interesting on a Tuesday!
I am feeling pretty good leading up to the race although Geoff is away on a hunting trip my last week of training before I taper so I might be calling in all my favors that week. Hopefully heading off to ride the whole race this weekend, so stay tuned for an up to date version of how I am feeling leading up to Le Race.
