It was really nice to start last week with a ‘public holiday’ recovery ride out to Fisantekraal with the Cycle Teknix Social Cycling Club before the week of training got underway.
The legs took a little longer than expected to get working again, but when they eventually came back, they felt good… The highlight of the week will have to be Sunday’s mtb ride out to Hoogekraal, definitely one of the best trails in the area to work on your technical skills. It was super bumpy and rocky out there and with a little rain the previous evening, it made riding around the corners nice and slippery!
Looking forward to a tough few weeks of training leading up to WP XCO Champs at the end of the month. I really want to get my interval sessions dialed as I am familiar with the course and know more or less what to expect on race day which gives me the opportunity to finish with a pleasing result.
