What is going on with the weather at the moment? Crossjunkie and myself had a great training session today but I was way overdressed and spent the session feeling very warm.
Alan introduced me to his cross training route just round the corner from our homes - result.
The area has a little of everything including some nice barriers where Alan passed on his technique for smooth dismount, bike pick up and remount. Plus some good steps, climbs and downhill sections all in all the lap really flows well.
STOP PRESS Alan even got me doing some running - uphill sprints 5 in total as I am struggling with my thighs pumping up on the runs. then a final tortoise and hare with A giving me 45 second start before he set off - he wouldn't have caught me if I hadn't missed a turn and gone the wrong way, my excuse and I am sticking to it!!!
Next Saturday will see our boys (Jack and Matt) taking part in the Go Ride cross training session at Manchester which they are looking forward too nearly as much as we are!
Then Sunday should see us up at the Lakes for the NW Cross race which I hope lives up to it's surroundings if you see us and you haven't introduced yourself then please do so.
Don't be shy get posting your rides, recipes, stories photo's etc lets here from you all especially those of you further afield!!!!
