Pretty quiet day here on the training front. After Monday’s three hour ride on slippery and snow-covered paths, today was all about recovery. I totally wimped out and rode the trainer… Yes, it was above zero and the sun was shining and I rode the trainer. Really, I just couldn’t face cleaning the bike and doing all the laundry afterwards.
So I rode indoors. Watched the last episode of Californication and started watching the first season of the Wire. But don’t worry, I’m not staying soft for long. Tomorrow will see me out ripping it up in the woods of Floreal Lichtaart. I’ve got a bunch of intervals to do in the woods. Should be a good fun day. Lots of time to practice riding in the white stuff and to get even better at “letting my bike do the work”.
It is a bit of a funny training week with the big race of the week on Saturday. Nothing like a World Cup on Boxing Day in front of 30,000 fans to keep you pedaling fast and staying off the front brake.
