Late night at work and then a nice social visit to see my Mum which is always nice. So, no training for me tonight, as planned. Just over 2 weeks to go until the next event which is the Polka Dot Challenge which I'm using as a preparation ride for La Marmotte just to see how I'm going without going full tilt. Current plan is to keep training steadily and not do a formal/proper taper in preparation for this event and just see how I go on the day, as if it was a normal weekend ride. Still hoping to go below my previous time for the event which was about 6:30 in 2006 I believe, mind you, I've still got to sort out somewhere to sleep yet!
