Good morning from a sunny Southern California. It's been a wee while since my last blog. Being a full time cyclist has been taking up my time rather fully as of late. I've been ramping up the intensity of my training thanks to my coach and the San Diego weather and some great company. Fellow tt1 rider Alex Bowden and I are living in a humble studio within spitting distance of the sea and smelling distance of the lagoon.
We've been training plenty and basking in the sunshine plenty more. Enjoying good food and the company of good friends before the racing season starts in earnest in a few weeks. I'm looking forward to hitting the road and having some fun but I'm also partial to being a bit of a homebody especially with such a perfect view from our kitchen window! As we speak i am using said view, along with this blog to procrastinate on a hard ride which i have scheduled.
Between moving house, riding lots and attempting to sort out visa/ family stuff. I had some family issues to resolve over the holidays which made the period less than festive but i'm glad to report that they are as far towards a resolution as can be expected. Blogging about them in detail would be neither useful nor helpful but it certainly took up a lot of time and a lot of my capacity to be cheerful. I've fallen rather behind on my online publishing commitments, let me tell you, there's no need to worry. I intend to return,stronger than before in a fashion which would make the one testacled wonder entirely envious.
but first, as my blood sugar arrow points straight up, it's chamois time!
