Spin just keeps getting bigger
26 spinners (28 if you count myself and Nath!)
In a winter that keeps breaking records, we've just notched up our biggest Tuesday Spin Session yet. It seems the harder we make the sessions, the more people come. We had 28 in total last night, 5 sprinters and the rest doing various enduro streams and it was huge. The Blackburn clubrooms are proving to be TARDIS-like, we can keep finding room for more spinners. I'm glad I made a big bolla, it all went! The A stream had 3/4 Tabatas to do and mostly survived intact, we haven't been able to break Tom Leaper yet, but next week, maybe ... We missed Andrew Jordan, and wish him all the best for a rapid recovery and also wish Bridgette Thomas good luck and good speed for the Vics this weekend.
We didn't have any takers for the Tuesday night Tour watching, but it was a school night. Sitting at home watching it on the little TV afterwards Lucie and I were amazed and thrilled at the plays up the final climb and the stunning descent. When Armstrong bridged up to the leaders after getting dropped ... wow! Class. Our last Tour night will be Ventoux, the beast. This Saturday. It should be brilliant.
This morning the mighty DUCCs trained at Blackburn and we worked on leadouts and started learning how to throw the bike, before finishing with a couple of 2 on 1's to get them thinking race tactics. The weather was good, cold and a bit windy at first but it soon warmed up once the sun poked over the clouds and a good session was had by all.
Tonight most of the Sprint Squad will be over in the powerHaus for their usual Wednesday strength training session too, so as usual, it's all go at aboc HQ!
