I knew this was going to be a poor week. After two weeks of fairly high mileage, I was due to be away for most of the week. Birmingham on Tuesday, then straight to Birmingham airport on Tuesday evening to fly to Zurich.
I did ride to work on Monday, and to the pub on Friday, but only 18 miles. We got out yesterday for a short tandem ride and again again this afternoon, but only 30 miles or so in total. The weather was sunny but very windy, so quite a hard ride.
After getting up early all week due to being on Central European Time, I was looking forward to a lie in this weekend. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to happen. Saturday we were woken up by number 2 son heading out to a scout camp. This morning I had to get up early to marshal at a local triathlon run by a friend. Last night was also switch to British Summer Time, so 7 o’clock was really six. I’m knackered.
The tri went well, I was manning a level crossing, taking numbers for anyone delayed by trains, so they could have a bit of time removed to compensate. Fortunately the race was run exactly on time, and so we only had two trains to contend with and only 3 or 4 people delayed. Much to the disappointment of some who were hoping for a breather.
Anyway, snow forecast again for next week, my riding partners are away in Spain and US, so not sure how much I’ll get in.
Miles for the week – 48
Total miles - 980
