Sunday Training

Another good ride today, solo this time, and my oh my wasn't it cold and windy. It is definitely not supposed to be just 7 degrees centigrade at this time of year but I'm afraid it is.

This has been another good solid week of training with a continuing shift towards the establishment of my endurance ready for July. The current plan is to do one long ride at the weekend with the second ride of the weekend getting progressively longer in the run up to the "Tour du Nord" which will determine exactly how good or bad my endurance fitness is!

This week has seen my CTL pass the 90 mark and I want that to fall back a touch now to avoid getting overly fatigued, day off tomorrow I think so that will be a start. Have been pleased though with how I've responded to my day in day out regime, been feeling fine and haven't taken a day off since Monday so that's the kind of pre tour regime I need.

Nasty experience today caused by a lunatic overtaking a stream of cars approaching me from the opposite direction, he seemed completely oblivious to the fact that I was even on the road. I managed to avoid going off the road but this was a salutary reminder to ALWAYS keep your eye on the road ahead, if I'd had my head down in an aero position or been peering down at the chain rings or something I'd have been done for.
