This Haute Route season is not unfurling like I might have imagined, but I know it’s my fault. I don’t seem to have the same motivation as in previous years, not to mention far less discipline. I suppose one leads to the other.
Regardless, I am starting to see some progress on the weight/fat front and now, more or less 6 months into training, My caliper numbers are starting to go down. Still, I’m nearly 19% full of fat, which is not very near ‘athlete’. I’ll keep on plugging.
As for riding, I’m putting in bigger rides and have ridden almost 150 hours this year, with over 41,000 meters of climbing. I’ll need lots more of both to get myself prepared for Haute Route Pyrenees.
