With La Marmotte coming up it seems reasonable to do a bit of hill training (!) so that's what today was all about even though the ride was somewhat messed up by the tyre failure detailed below.
Anyway, all went well and I had a good ride up and down over the moors to Rothbury with some long efforts on the hills which seemed to go well. I think I might be starting to just feel the benefit of even shedding a couple of pounds though that could all be wishful thinking fuelled by my optimistic imagination :-)
Still, a worthwhile ride, with a TSS of 122 and a NP of 250W, pretty much within my comfort zone the way it worked out in the end.
