So 2012 has started pretty good. Over the xmas period I had time to chill, relax the body and more importantly my mind. I have come back this season excited, craving to train and itching to race. Before we get excited about racing this will be a training year for me. That is my main focus. Make some big improvements and get some distance under the belt. I have entered Challenge Fuerteventura so that will be my first race of the season. I am going to try and focus on races as close and cheap to where ever I will be based purely on the fact that money is tight so really hoping on a sponsor meeting when I head home in Feb from Gran Canaria. Have fingers crossed for me please!!
So the last week in Gran Canaria has been good, feel like I am close to where I left off last season in terms of training so thats exciting for me. Had some long bikes/runs and some hard swims. This weekend could see me doing my first marathon. Excited but also praying that the winds hold out or at least give me a mega tail wind!! Had a good long ride with Stephen a few days back, started off at sea level and it was lovely and warm, by the end of the climb it was cold and wet and was barely able to hold on to my brakes on the descent. Other than that was great, 6 hours on the saddle and feeling quite good!
If anyone wants to head over for some training in February/March let me know!
Lets hope 2012 is better than the film!
