At the beginning of the month I signed up for the 2018 Invictus Games which are being held in Sydney, with trials for the team taking place in January and March next year.
As the Winter kicks in it is harder to get out for those longer rides on the street so I went to Lanzarote this month to get some good miles in. The weather was perfect for cycling and, with Lanzarote being a volcanic island, there were lots of climbs to take on. I spent two weeks on the island doing some good endurance training and definitely improved my training and cardio.
The race calendar for next year has now come out, so I'll be sitting down in the New Year and entering myself for the races. There are events everywhere, from all the UK races to Italy, Belgium, France, Germany and possibly Canada. In addition, I’m looking at maybe entering a marathon in Italy next March just to get a feel for the competition before I go into the season. That way I'll get a heads up on what to expect later in the year.
That's it for now. I look forward to reporting back in a month's time.
All the best,
