Well it looks like a trip back to turbo land is on the cards tonight. I have got a new software expansion pack “MTB Extreme” to load and try out so that should keep me busy for a while. I think some people have had trouble loading this so I’ll have to see what transpires. Time is against me today or I’d have packed up my desk and headed out into the sun. Talk about enticing… I am looking out on green fields, a blue sky and the sun and all I want to do is get out! I am resigned to the turbo for today though, let’s see how it goes.

I’ll aim to pack up today at about half four so I can get the pain over and done with by dinner time.

EDIT: Well I managed an hour of hell averaging 151 bpm. I tried to push a bigger gear up the hills this time and concentrated on pressing the pedals more firmly (to gain strength) than spinning up in a smaller gear. Did it hurt? Hell yeah! Towards the end even the little climbs were killing me and once or twice I didn’t have the strength to push on after I had crested the top. Luckily this didn’t last long and the very end of the ride saw me back into familiar territory….. time trial mode. I haven’t time trialled seriously for years now but the technique stays with you.
