Turbo training at home
May 28, 2014
Coach Ant had set me an hour of cycling with a reasonably long warm up and a long cool down with the mid section being an attempt to work out what my 20km TT pace might be. I spent a long time creating a playlist to help me get in the mood for the race and managed to get in a very unattractive selfie whilst cooling down!
A lot of my clothes are in the wash, so I wore my Decathlon bib shorts and a ‘new’ Silvini top. I like the look of the bib shorts, but the chamois is like a nappy (diaper) and I don’t find them very comfortable. The ‘new’ cycling top is one that I bought last year, but have never worn before. I definitely think I need to lose a few pounds before I wear it out of the house, but as it’s mainly white it helped to keep me cool.
Whilst I was pedalling away, someone arrived to collect a portable TV, DVD player and freeview box that I had put on freecycle. Stu answered the door to him and he seemed surprised to see me on my bike, but I didn’t want to stop. I later found out that the poor guy had arrived on his bike and had to cycle home with an old-style TV under his arm!
