I’m there, representing a company, sort of, and everything. Woo!

Training for it is stepping up a bit now that I’m into “Base 3” period, with a couple of 5 hr rides this week, followed by a few more big rides the week after. Then it’s into a couple of weeks with a 7 or 8hr ride in (along with a few 3 – 5 hr rides) to get some proper endurance built up, before concentrating on speed (speed in the middle of 3 – 6hr rides) until the race.
Don’t really know if the idea behind how i’m training will work, if it does this’ll be an ace stepping stone for next summers 24hr races and if it doesn’t i’ll have learnt lots from it and be able to adapt my training for the months to come to fit what suits me.

Now i just need to get something to keep my ears warm

ALSO, it’s just been brought to my attention that it’s steve’s birthday and it sounds like he’s having the day from hell.
Happy Birthday.
