Sorry for the false advertising; there’ll be no willy talk past the blog title, but you’ll sympathize if you’re a male cyclist. It was frigid out there today!
I’ve only got 5 more days till the race and, since I’ve been scrutinizing the statistics of riders from past races, I wanted to go out today and push a bit more than usual just to see if I am totally in over my head with this racing thing. Here are the stats from today:
Distance – 53 km
Elevation Gain – 444 m
Average Speed – 28.3 kph
The average speed looks reasonable and I think I’d be happy to have something similar this Saturday. Just one thing though, the distance of the race is 20 km more and, more crucially maybe, the vertical distance is probably more than double what I did today. I’m hoping that gravity works both ways and will favor my extra few kg on the descents!
