I started training for the 2015 race season in the last week of October. After nearly 4 months I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now. One more month and the season will be upon me. Many hours of training on the turbo, hundreds of miles on the road and still the nagging doubt at the back of my mind – is it enough?
I did some field testing yesterday – trying a couple of different positions and saddles, and also trying to get my body to remember what a TT position feels like. The first few races are always difficult and challenging, and so it was yesterday. I’ve pencilled in races in March to get myself used to racing again, but field testing plays an important part in the process of making that as quick as possible. The racing starts in earnest in April, with some rides that will play a large part in whether I achieve my goals for the year.
It’s been a lonely road to get to this point. I hope it’s been the right road.
