I had a great nights sleep and a clean bike so there was nothing stopping me today.

I got the finger out and did a turbo session today. Let’s just say I got through it. Many times I asked myself was it worth it, and many times I called myself a wuss and decided to knuckle down.

Memories of Stinger (Paddy Ryan) bringing the pain in the Portlaw Woods in pre-season training came flooding back. His smile grew proportionally to our grimaces, but come the first game of the season we’d be flying (fitness wise at least).

This was the first day of a three day block, tomorrow was supposed to be an outdoor spin, but I’ll have to get up early if I’m going to squeeze it in. If not I’ll just do an equivalent turbo session. Please let me get up early, and please let the roads be dry.
