Back into the swing of things

After Sundays race, I took a break on Monday and cycled into work on Tuesday. It was nice to get back into the regular cycle's again. Wednesday myself and Gene did a bit in Glending, and again on Friday, but only for an hour.

Today I was out again for a hard hour up there and tomorrow will be more in the region of 2 hours. This is full on race pace, non-stop. The fact that most of the loop is single track makes it even tougher as there is no let up - you're constantly in and out of the saddle, power on, off and on again. Perfect!

The road biking is pretty much not happening at the moment. No real advantage to doing it now from a training point of view - unless there is not much on spin-wise and I fancy a change. That said there is a road race in on Tuesday in the Phoenix Park, which I might pop along to if work allows. The Giant is in the shop as the squeak from the rear wheel is getting louder. And between one thing and another I won't be able to pick it up until Tuesday.

3 weeks to the final NPS, so lots of time to get the fitness back, and some hopefully :)
