I just want to finish it in one piece. The guys I am riding with are much fitter than me. I am guessing they will ride ahead.. stop at a pub for a pint.. let me catch up.. and as i appear will get on their bikes lol. I am a big boy who is losing weight but is still 14.5 stones - i am NOT the xc whippet you might imagine
First of all - NJEE - wow - what a generous offer to lend me your turbo. That was seriously kind of you.. I think this might be a bit of kit that I will use more and more as I want to try my hand at triathlon next year so I will try to find a good one on ebay. If it all falls through though I may come begging to borrow yours
I will buy one of those sufferfest movies and see how i get on. I have to believe the running is going to help. I put in 5 miles 2 days ago, and another 5 miles today. I have an 8 mile run on sunday too. It HAS to help with endurance. I will do 2-3 bike sessions a week too to get more saddle time and condition my legs. Let's see how it goes.
Thanks to everyone for the advice - really helped me a lot.
