So another month down and this one has had loads of miles. In fact 996 of them on the bikes. Nearly all on the road with less than 100 off-road. But that isn't too much of a problem as more work on the mountain bike this week (where I don't record the miles as we don't cover much ground) has meant lots of skills stuff, including demonstration drop-offs by riding a drop that is bigger than anything I had ever done before, riding across a log without falling in and lots of playing in a pump track. I also got in a nice long road ride out Hebden Bridge way so there were some nice hills there. In fact another month like this and then into May I might even be ready for the race!
Running hasn't happened this month, a mere 5miles covered. I haven't ran in a couple of weeks as the last time I went out it turned into a hobble and then a shuffle home as I was in pain. Instead of running I am trying to make an effort to stretch - something I am really bad at neglecting! So its been get in and stretch, get to work and stretch, have a bath and stretch. With some added work on the foam roller I am noticing the difference. I find it hard to keep it up but keep it up I must! Hopefully next week I'll try and short run again, but I don't want to hurt myself so I won't push it!
Hope everyone else had a good March? I enjoyed feeling stronger on the bike again.
