So the night before last it's dark by the time the kiddies are in bed, the traffic is busy, and I haven't trained in nearly a week. So I decide to go for a run, and do a little 3 mile jaunt. With a head-cold starting.
Not a good move.
Two days later, cold is in full swing, and legs are killing me. I have come to two important conclusions:
1. Train when you're well, not when you have incipient Man Flu.
2. Running fit is not the same as cycling fit.
On the other hand, I'm starting to feel more ready for this, and I'll be putting up a few more retro-blog posts over the next few days. Remember the sponsorship site: http://justgiving.com/shanemckee - thanks!
