Well… it’s been a while since my last post! In short, I took much of January off from serious training with only a couple of sessions. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been back into things. I’ve been putting in a good deal of time on the bike on a set of rollers. I’m managing to get aero on the rollers now, albeit slightly wobbly.
After considering some of the courses for the year (Austria and possibly Monaco…) I’ve decided to get my chainset changed out to a compact (going from 54/42 to 50/34). This will help with hills but will reduce the maximum speed for a given cadence. Not a bad trade off. So the bike will now have compact chainset of 50/34 with a cassette with 12-23T. Oh, the compact I’ve decided on is the Shimano Ultegra SL compact.
Back to training… well no running outdoors and only a little on the treadmill. Cycling has been pretty much only on the bike on the rollers. Swimming- well not much as the last few times I’ve been to the pool for a swim its been closed. Sigh. Defo time to think about a new gym/pool.
