We decided to go down and camp anyway. The weather forcast was very wet but we thought it would be fun to see everyone. Arriving on Friday evening I was wishing I was racing, a nice muddy race would be perfect for the singlespeed. But by Sunday when we got home I was happy enough, although I would have prefered to have ridden the course did turn into a mud bath! We had a lovely weekend with friends and it was nice to listen to the rain overnight on the Saturday as oppose to ride in it.
Now I'm thinking about next year....

So how is the collarbone doing? Well not much really. I can feel and see a nobbly bit so I knew there was a callus. At the hospital on friday, Dr told me it seemed a good callus and you can now make it out on xray. Unfortunately he also said no cycling yet, gave me a funny look. I explained that I needed to at least ride a bike for work. But no another four weeks before I see the hospital or ride anything other than a turbo.
At this rate I will be losing races to Ali when I am back on my bike, good to see her getting out on it seeing as I am her usual riding partner.

After a couple of days having to stay in waiting for post I went to meet Ali for lunch. I usually just walk along the main road from Bolton but Ali had mentioned that you can walk through the park so I found the path and went that way. I saw a part of Queens Park that I hadn't seen before which also seemed to have lots of bridges. Made having to walk there more enjoyable, it feels a bit like a chore as it takes so much longer than riding.

Other than that this week I have made a real effort with the turbo getting on every morning. I've found if I go on first thing I do it, otherwise I think about it don't get on and beat myself up. Hopefully it will keep some fitness going. At the moment I am messing around with intervals, might need to sit down and plan some sort of plan.
I've also admitted I won't be doing Mayhem and emailed them, before I was hoping it would magically heal and I could ride (I realise how silly that sounds).
Next hospital appointment is a week on Friday, hopefully the xray shows some healing, I can already feel a callus so I am hopeful.
