Training Review Week 18/11/13

If you want to know what a crap week looks like, this is it ! After the race on Sunday I injured my foot and decided to take a day off to see how it would go, we were going to Belgium on the Friday to the track cycling (see here) which unfortunately meant with me trying to get work all sorted in 3 days, one day off became 4 and it was soon Friday. Having a weekend off drinking is just that, there was no SBR going on and although it didn’t make for a great training week, it felt great to chill out with my wife and a few good friends over a beer or 10...

Training Review Week 11/11/13

Well this was a week of contrast, 2 key measures in one week and both an indicator of what work needs to be done. With a slow start to the week I could see a CP20 in my horizon, if you don’t know what this is, its a way of testing current 20 min bike fitness by repeating a test of all out effort for 20mins on the turbo and taking the average watts for this time, this result can then be used for setting training interval sets and even extrapolated into race efforts for all distances. I am hesitant to advocate this 100% myself as even though Hunter and Allen are the experts, my experience is that...

Training Review Week 04/11/13

Not a good start to the week as we were at a wedding on the Sunday and the Monday was a driving and recovery day from Cardiff, the weekend was a great chance to catch up with good mates and celebrate a lovely couples day, having the day off was essential 🙂   I also reduced the Sunday ride as it was indoors on the Computrainer, steady but with no breaks, always good to thump out an even power ride when the weather is awful outside. My running is starting to show some improvement but I am still way too heavy to be making inroads to early PB’s in 2014, more effort on the nutrition...

Gent 6 Day Track Cycling Event 2011

Its October 2013 and the second time we have booked to go this awesome event, in 2011 I happened to be looking for a weekend away, close by, with cheap flights to get away with Kelly for a bit of a laugh, few beers and take in a city. It probably isn’t the first thing you might think of but she likes city breaks, i like cycling, we both like beer, and it wasn’t race season. And the flights were £60 for the 2 of us return. So, I was looking around last month for something very cheap to get us away for the weekend. I wanted to give myself and Kelly a weekend away before Xmas and...
