Another week of training / Tour de Suisse

With no racing scheduled for the weekend, a bit of rain and working odd hours, it became a bit hard to keep focused on the training for the week. So, I changed a few things (again, Iain!).

I jumped on the trainer one night, rode to work and did two rides yesterday. With that, I am at least close to the 375 km I had to do this week:

11:45 am - Commute to work, 26 km, 1:00, Easy.

8:45 am - Hill Sprints with Daniel, 55 km, 2:10, Hard.

With that definition in those tanned legs? It has got me wondering :p

Could you please tell me where you got that awesome tin of coffee?

Those are a lot of kilometers! Far more than I will do this week.

Groover, thanks for "photoshoping" the definition in my legs :-)

Whitey, read the comment above :-)
The coffee tin, one may wonder how many kgs of coffee we have put in it over the years...

Hi Chris, I will adding some kms to my weeks as the next "BIG " race is the 200+ km Grafton to Inverell in late September. Also, there are a few tough ones in between now and then... The issue for us, amateurs, is finding the time (and sometimes, motivation)to do those kms. Specially for those travelling all over the country, like yourself.
