Riding on Christmas Day...

by Squiggle   December 25, 2011  

I know it's unholy, against tradition, or even illegal (apparently), but I just stuck in 60minutes on the rollers with 4 5minute intervals. I've always loved training on Christmas morning as it sets you up nicely for a day of vegetation. Anyone else manage to sneak in a session?

Bright and breezy here, great weather for 2 hours around the lanes in my new long-sleeve jersey.

Now definitely ready for Christmas dinner Smile

Happy Christmas everyone.

nice 30k jaunt for me, haven't looked at the numbers yet but felt on fire. Best thing when the missus is clucking around the kitchen in any case.

Aiming for at least some kind of ride on each of the four days, good so far.

Would have loved to been out but spent most of the day setting up my young un's bike so he could go out !!!

@stumps, went out for a walk yesterday, best thing we saw was the sight of this kid and his dad in an empty supermarket car park. The boy is wobbling on a bike, all shiny and new, the fella holding on to the boy/bike - clearly first time out without stabilizers. Classic.
