After an easier week it’s time to get the hammer down again.
Mountain bike ride, along the canal it was a beautiful sunrise, the air smelt like autumn, there’s the cool crisp slightly damp feel, but it’s fresh and I can push push push for longer before I start to get too hot.
I love to train in the autumn it’s just so beautiful, in a few weeks time the leaves will change and start to fall and colours will explode.
For now it was a ride out in the dark, lights on, push for 55mins and snack turn around and go back.
I had a rabbit (faster cyclist) to chase for most of the return journey which kept the pace up, then I attacked the last strava segment. I’m 23 seconds off the KOM here but only 10 seconds off the top 10, so next time I won’t go as hard at the bottom and blow up near the top… good fun though.
