A nice ride this morning with Chris and Paul, its been a while since we’ve done something together. My sore throat persists unfortunately, but at least the cold weather this morning seemed to take the pain away. Hopefully it will fully disappear in the next couple of days, and I can get back to my calorie burning rides. Its only 15 weeks to the Etape Caledonia, and 5 weeks to the Puncheur Sportive both of which I’ve entered. So I need the training and more importantly, need the weight loss!
We stopped for a coffee at Neros in Tenterden today, so we pushed a little harder on the ride as a result, speeds of 18-20mph in places, even where we had a headwind. Although we didn’t sustain those speeds for long, I’m some way off maintaining that sort of speed as an average for my rides. But its quite addictive on a bike, nothing quite like pushing a decent speed under your own steam! So a nice ride this morning, also saw a few others out and about, probably on something a bit longer than we did, but nice to get out with the boys!
This mornings ride……..
