Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep. Back to Southampton and and back to the 6:20 alarm. A step on the scales, and it seems Christmas was kind to me, I actually lost a little weight. A nice slow walk in the snow and then time for a dip in the pool. The snow was good, it meant I pretty much had the lane to myself. So after a 500m warm up a main set of 10x200m on 4:00. Going back to a 25m pool I was able to see that the video analysis has paid off, my times have already dropped by 5s / 200m. A good session of 2650m in all.
On the way home I saw the type of cyclist that gives others a bad name. Well I call him a cyclist, it was really two kids on a BMX. They rode straight from a side street in front of me onto the snow covered main road without even looking at the oncoming cars. Idiots.
This evening I got the turbo out. After replacing my garmin speed sensor and setting it up I hopped on and started pedalling. After 10 minutes the wheel started slipping. After getting off I seems it has got another flat this inner tube seems a bit crap. Put the road wheel on to finish the session, 45 minutes. By the end the room had warmed up nicely. I was knackered though, 90km sweating like that could be interested.
1 hour 40mins proper training. Bring on tomorrow.
