Well it has been a good five weeks or so since I started riding to a programme. With the goal of riding Le Race and the great support of Richard and the CP team, all thanks to winning the entry and coaching package following a rash decision to enter a Facebook competition, it feels like this goal could be achievable. I am loving the CP bunch rides (awesome lot of people and fab leadership and coaching) and I am finding that Richard’s programme is keeping me focused and is much easier to implement than I expected. All the while I am getting stronger.
I ride CTTA time trials which are a great measure of progress. Bar from today, when the gusty wind and carbon deep rims thwarted me, along with sketchy drivers and a bad warm up, I have progressed with PBs week after week. Stoked. Training rides aren’t without a bit of fun either. Here’s some pics of my blackberry picking pit stop in the weekend, out riding with my youngest son. New use for waterbottles, but the smoothies, magic. Perfect training food ;-)s
