Tuesday night = double spinfit. I didn’t go last week because of my cold, but this week I felt ok. I started on a course of Penicillin the Dr prescribed and so far I’m not feeling much better, but I’m not feeling too bad either. I’m still a bit bunged up but I’m hoping that will go soon.
Double Spinfit on new bikes… arg. It was hard work and I took it easy on more than one occasion in the first class, and quite a few more times in the second class. I don’t normally take it easy like I did, and I can’t decide whether I was:
- Just being sensible… getting over a cold and meant to be tapering… I was telling myself I was meant to be taking it easy.
- Being lazy… I had the excuse of just getting over a cold and meant to be tapering… so I had the excuse to sit down instead of work hard.
I’d like to think it’s the first option… 😀 Although I did get a lot of funny looks from Helen (instructor) and she asked if I was ok. I just didn’t fancy pushing it too much.

Spinfit 2: 45 mins, Ave HR: 132, Calories: 500
This taper malarky is strange… I’m imposing it on me more so now I’m desperate to get over my cold… but it’s weird. It’s like I have an excuse to take it easy and relax.
Over the next few days I’m gonig to spend some time reading and planning for the big day: Nutrition, Hydration, Carb Loading, Race Packing List, Race Day, Pacing… that should do.
