But look out in August....... I will be screaming.......
I have suffered from the Colds and Flu and work in "Piggy" central, and alas I have sufered a bit of a head cold and can't seem to shake the tail of it away. I have trained, and trained, but seem to have taken a step back.... But just a small one. In a matter of 2 weeks of being sick, I have managed to lose about 4 weeks of fitness, and that really shits me (sorry for the language).. But it really does.
I struggle at the moment with efforts, and find myself in a lather of sweat only just over 15 min on the Ergo. So now I need to make a decission, either dig a deeper hole, our take it easier and get back to basics for a couple of weeks............ So I have chosen the later and decided to take a step back and gone back to the start, considering I have plenty of time (remember I am aiming for December).
So back to BASE for a little while..........
But keeping as fit as possable...
Like Carl i have had a vit of a head cold as of late (no we hav'nt been kissing....... No really) and have been a little flat. I took a week off racing and headed out to the Velo last night just to do one race and head home. I started to warn up and realized there was no way in hell i sould be there. After a mear 3-4 laps i was gasping for breath and need to stop and take a drink.... "Still not ready" was about the only thing i could think, but i will give the first race a crack anyway. I found a few good wheels, didn'y get knocked off (not from the lack of trying form the other riders) and managed to get to the bell before pulling out of the race..... I was trashed and a pool of sweat, so i know that next week will be a little easier.
I brought out some new Bike Bling to show off a little..... I like new toys, but this one has a purpose. I have found it really hard to get my position right, but with the ergostem everything is very easy. With the exchange rate at the moment, they are still pretty $$$$$, but a real investment if you want something to help.
