Well, it had to happen, things were going swimmingly in training … until last week 😦
I’ve suffered with asthma all my life and it’s always just once a year with either dry air or hay fever triggering it off.
It’s time was last week so very little training last week boooo
Sorted with a anew inhaler I now seem to be over it (hopefully) and have been pushing the hilly training mileages again this week.
On the positive side I had my bike into KB Cycles for a full, final service prior to my ride and they replaced the head set, chain and cassette as well as tweaking everything else – rides like a dream now with no creaks or groans. Just need to replace the front wheel as the rim is quite worn – new wheel on order!!
I’ve asked for any volunteers to accompany me on any days as I always think it’s the head that gives way before the body which makes the task much more difficult going solo the full way. Through one of the forums I post to one such rider is doing LeJog the same time as me and offered to ride together from Bristol up to Carlisle, checkout Darren’s site at http://darrenlejog.weebly.com/ . He’s then heading more west than myself but it’ll be good to have company. I also have a colleague coming across to Carlisle to cycle Carlisle to Glasgow.
