And another week on… snow stops play!

This weekend was supposed to the first intensive weekend of the year.  Today was going to be the first 25M time trial of the season, and tomorrow was the Chirk 200k audax.  Bearing in mind that last year’s Chirk was completed in 20˚C+ temperatures, it is galling to find that this year both rides have effectively been cancelled because of the snow and ice, and sub-zero temperatures.  Welcome to spring…

December’s a White-Off

No riding this weekend which coupled with the snow and ice earlier in December all adds up to a very poor month for cycling.  So far I’ve only managed 144 miles this month and if the weather stays as it is there may not be much more to go on top of that.

More disciplined people than me will doubtless spend hours on their turbo’s in the garage and I guess I should too, but it’s sooooo boring.

To top it all my regular games of football have been cancelled more often that not too, meaning  I’ve not been getting as much exercise as usual and I can feel my fitness drifting.  Of course I’ve adjusted my eating accordingly.  Oh, wait…
