The end of another week and Strava tells me that I have not cycled huge numbers of ks this week but my knees tell me something else – http://app.strava.com/athletes/cgurney.
Still on the wagon however, so not all bad – in fact something of a record.
This weekend, I have high hopes for a couple of hours of hill training – out with the Dulwich Paragon boys and girls on a ride to somewhere called Elmos end followed by reps??
No idea what this means but I’m to bring a spare tube and some knee warmers – all sounds very weird.
As we get closer to the day – only two months away, I find mysel emailing the “Bike Whisperer” – I kid you not. Apparently he can diagnose problems with technique and fix them with the aid of a shim or two!!!
After consulting the cycling fraternity, it would appear that I have a mechanical problem with with my left leg, nothing as serious as Oscar Pistorius of course but non the less, one that is seriously impeding my progress. There you have it – It’s official – I am at a disadvantage. Anyway, Mr. Whisperer is confident that it can be fixed. Appointment booked so I’ll let you know.
Weather wise – very chilly sleet in fact.
Next week, training begins properly.
