Power – Dressing, Not Watts
So I’m in full on training mode. Even though I am still in a semi-blissful state of not really knowing how hard this race is going to be, the training programme so far has given me a small indication of what’s to come.
My trip to a well-known cyclists haunt last week was interesting. Running up hills with a bike on your shoulder initially was quite fun. ‘Look at me’ I internally sang as I ran* (*slow plod) up the hill while other weekend warriors took the ‘easy’ route cycling up the tarmac. Quick hop on bike at top, roll down and repeat. Legs felt fresh, all was good. Second lap was less enjoyable as the calves started to scream…the third we won’t talk about for fear of using unprintable words. Can’t even remember the last two, probably for the best.
