Friday. This week, Monday as I wasn't training I bought some wine. And drank it !
Tuesday, a hard slog on the turbo, 2 mins flat-out, 30 secs. sprint. Repeat 10 times,
Wednesday, 6 minutes flat-oy, 1 minute rest, repeat 8 times !
Thursday 45 secs 125 rpm, 45 rest, repeat 10 times, then 5 mins flat-out, 1 rest, repeat 4 times.
This must be the most intense 3 days I have ever, ever done.
So I should be really good this season.
Apart from that, problems with the GL cheque changes I did for soap lot, that I thought
would be a problem. Teething trouble with the hoses, but they are buying more
days work.
Snow ! Cold this week, even put leg-warmers on for the turbo ! Yesterday evening started snowing
and it was deep this morning. Driving in was dodgy, but thawing now.

Monday. Eurgh. More wage-slavery.
Friday decided to have a blow-out, so bought beer, wine and crisps from Sainsbury's. And a bottle of Cave. Had 2 small glasses of Cava, bottle of red and bottle of Deuchar's IPA. Excellent beer.
Saturday started building a raised flower bed on the patio in the morning. Did a hard ride to Hopwood, Redditch, Beoley, Wood End, Weatheroak, Watery Lane. 60 mins L2, 30 mins L3, 20 mins L4. 39 miles. Hard.
Sunday up (great big sausage sandwich) and off to Becketts. No-one there so plodded off feeling tired, but slowly warming up. To Wood End, Packwood, lanes to Knowle, back to Wood End, Bransons Cross, Weatheroak, past back of Becketts and along little narrow lane at back of Wythall, Gay Hill, Ryknield St, past Man-in-Moon & home. Off to Fort, collected Dad, dinner, took Dad home. Finished off track bike.
