Not long to go now til finale, so i reckoned a short sharp ride was in order to see what the top (ha!) end power was like. After all i dont have time for any more base now, and i need to recover somewhat.
So, i headed out to aberfoyle and did 4 laps of the race course out there in drizzle. The wet and slippy conditions made for great fun in the woods and over the roots and rocks, and the climbing was stiff enough to require full on out of the saddle efforts for prolonged periods of time.
How did it go....
Ok. S'pose. Sore, tired legs and i will likely benefit from it, but it didnt feel easy or pleasant. Dont s'pose it would....ah well.
