Christmas Holidays

Well Christmas is upon us again !

After a busy year at work, I have flown up to Cairns for short break before the festive season is truly upon our door step...

After a few years since I have visited Graham and Verdi's house, the humidity is a real smack down!

Staying over for a week will prepare my liver for the Christmas break, but I must remember the day after I get home training locally will hurt so a few swims while in Cairns will keep me in shape, let's hope so any way.

Well the summer training has finally begun for me. Tuesday and Wednesday this week sore me start riding with Dave, Carlos, Tom and Al around Ipswich. It felt great to be out on the bike early in the morning with a good group of riders doing a few K's.

Tuesday morning was a nice roll out to Ripley and back we averaged about 29 k's an hr and 45 k for the morning. Wednesday morning 2nd morning out on the bike hurt though with a slightly low av and less k's but a lot higher intensity. Getting dropped and trying to make up the gap seamed to take forever, but thankfully a red light meant everyone needed to stop meaning I could catch up.

I was meant to ride out through Kolo this morning and on the dirt tonight but after a big week at work leading up to the holidays I decided a little sleep in was deserved so just a dirt ride today :-)
