Mar 21st
Monday

So, Stan was full of vim, vigor and horse shit today, although to be fair it wasn’t all his fault. We’d taken a long weekend off training to recharge our batteries and spend some weekend time with family etc. All lovely and fun.

Training Monday morning set out as normal. 22 or 30 miles the target. The weather was nice and the wind not too blowy so we decided to push on the circuit for 33 miles but as we got to the junction Stan – or dickhead as he shall now be called – said “let’s go to Preston and back. And so off we went to Preston.

Fortunately I am not as green as I am cabbage looking and just on the 20 miles roundabout (within 5 miles of Preston) there is a lovely little cafe/ice cream parlor. So we stopped for a skinny Latte and Fat Dickhead Stan had a big slice of cherry pie. Did him good on the journey back mind coz he was zooming along on a massive sugar rush.

So 40 miles done. 3 1/2 hours with an average speed of 11.53 mph. Not bad at all.
