News just in from the training frontline

I have important news directly from the cutting edge of cycle training. Based on extensive first-hand research I can reveal that sitting next to a swimming pool in southern Spain for ten days doing very little apart from swigging tequila and eating tapas makes it quite hard to cycle anywhere when you get back home. This is particularly true if you try to cycle any faster than a gentle jogging pace, or up any sort of hill.

That's all for now - more developments as they come in.

Did you find you had muscle wastage after your holiday? if not that be that you actually walked to the pool and didn't get your wife/partner/ to borrow a wheel chair from the hotel and push you to the poolside. obviously you wouldn't do anything so strenuous as to swim. Also did you hold your drinks yourself? if so big mistake, too much energy can be used holding your glass, I recommend getting the drink put on a table and then drinking it through a straw, no energy used.
Breakfast and other meals should be taken in bed, a winch then used to put you in the wheel-chair, job done.
It seems to me you didn't really rlax enough and did far too much excersise.
