An erratic schedule

Looking at my training, the last time I had a decent long ride was 25 February, almost two weeks ago. This is probably not an ideal training plan if I’m going to improve this season.

It’s starting to nag a bit in my mind that I’m probably not where I would like to be in terms of fitness this year. Then again it would be much easier if I wasn’t so exhausted all the time at the moment and picking up niggling little injuries more often than points. The latest list of them is some sort of muscle pain in my right shoulder, a tightness in my left leg and a bit of a sniffle.

If I were any further from being in some sort of shape I’d probably need home help. Hopefully things will get back on schedule this month with things due to settle back down a bit. I’m going to try and get out for the Park Ride this Saturday for the first time in what seems like forever and then get back into riding during the week to build up my fitness again.

There’s a race at Hillingdon on 15th March which I feel like I should be aiming to do although it’s the 2/3/4 series that was a brute last year. Why I want to flay myself behind a bunch of 2nd Cat riders I don’t know, but given there not much other racing about I feel like I should. Or maybe I could just go training instead. Which neatly brings us back to where we started.

*Sigh* It’s not easy is it?
