A Grey and Miserable Saturday

Only 16 weeks to the start of our cycle ride and I’m behind my training schedule. Excuses all weather related (unexpected snow in the Spring and howling gales which I couldn’t face) and nothing to do with any laziness on my part. 

The motivation to get out, was the thought of how difficult the challenge would be if I didn’t get myself back in the saddle. I managed a training ride with several climbs up the Ridgeway (a hill which is a 400ft ascent from our home), a total elevation gain of 1700ft and 28.2 miles. That was enough! I got home and thought about our second day of cycling when we would have to cover more than 90 miles as we travel through Glasgow and a few days later , when we’ll be in the Lake District and will have almost 6000ft of ascent. 16 weeks and counting…

    A great effort – just don’t remind me of the ascent we’ll have to do in Scotland!,
