Submerged in training

Filed under: bikes — dgpowell @ 11:34 am

Mountain Mayhem is only a few weeks away, with a rare foray into the world of NPS marathon races happening the week before and I am heading for them up to my neck in big training weeks.

Sitting round on holiday doing nothing was lovely, but now it’s time to hammer for as long as possible as often as possible and get rid of some of the lard I’ve stuck on my waist. Last night’s 2hr thrash @ 172bpm hr felt great (in a painful, gasping way) and today I’m off into the hills all afternoon and evening to relearn how to suffer 🙂
This process will be repeated over and over again, in ever increasing amounts, until it’s time to rest up and recover into something resmbling a bit of good form. Bring it on.


  1. Check me out, Gate practice tuesday from 6pm and sat from 10am, strugling with balance due to weak right ancle but its all coming back big time 🙂
