I’m not sure if I buy into this notion that it’ll take me six months to get in the sort of shape I need to be in for the one ride. Or maybe I’m just looking for excuses not to do the kilometres. What I am looking for is time to get on the bike and get out there and find my drive again.
I’ve been off the bike since before Christmas due to weather and laziness but I can’t wait to get back on it and get out there again. Not so much itchy feet as an itch in the thighs and calves to get pedalling and start building up to it. To start focusing on the goal and fguring out how I’m going to get there. It’s not that I don’t want to, more that I don’t quite know how to.
So from tomorrow it’s time to start finding time and going out, even if it is for just an hour’s burst of riding as hard as I can, or just turning the pedals over. The most important thing is going to be developing the power I need for climbing and finding a nice rhythm to my riding.
