Steady endurance ride today. Went up to the war memorial column in Alnwick to see who was about and 4 of the guys rolled up. They had a 5-6 hour ride planned which was further than I wanted to go today but decided to ride out with them to a suitable point and then turn for home which I did. Nice to be out with the chaps.
The ride was pretty lumpy but not bad at all and all seemed to go well. By the time I got home I'd covered just under 60 miles at an average of about 18mph which was fine for this sort of ride. Also bumped into another bloke I know from the LBS on the way back and rode with him for a little while.
My NP for this ride was 247W and I generated a TSS of just under 200. It's been a much better week this week and my CTL has taken another little nudge in the right direction. My TSS for the week is 756 and I've covered about 225 miles in about 12:42 hours of training, much better than recent weeks and I'm feeling a lot better than I have been. Feeling more optimistic about the Tour of Ireland.
