home > oaks > home
with such a hiatus from riding i am in need for some serious base. the plan for 2012 is to compete in all the rockytrail 8hr enduros solo. its not something i have tried before but i still feel physically i am much more capable of longer rides than short sprints.
the first race of the season is in 16 weeks and with a sorted training schedule for 2012 base 2 is where i will kick in this week. 10 hours was this weeks target and with 3 full riding days to go i have smashed it at 105% already.
i organised a ride with churchy and trieu, [trieu couldn't make it due to no baby sitter] a night ride from home – to the oaks up and back then home again. its a pretty impressive ride in total considering it is a 97.7km effort. i made it home at around 10:10 in a fair bit of pain everywhere but super happy with the full effort. i’m a long way off where i used to be but i believe in less than 2 months i should be almost back on schedule and hoping to keep up with churchy who was super strong all ride.
the best part of the ride was the single track section at night smashing it through there with confidence is pretty exhilarating.
