Moving the Goal Posts
Due to my training buddy’s inability to manage his diary, I’m having to move our Coast2Coast ride this year to mid-September. Basically he’d forgotten that the weekend we’d planned on will be . . .
- His wedding anniversary
- His wife’s birthday
- Just a couple of days before his wife’s PhD viva
Actually, now I write it down, it’s clear that his wife may be the root cause, and his poor diary management just a symptom . . . .
I have an alternative explanation though - it seems that riding fixed-wheel up hill is something that makes Training Buddy rather tired. At least that’s what happened this morning. After just an hour of climbing up & down the hills leading down to the banks of the Tyne, he looked more like a victim participant of the Dunwich Dynamo - I’ve never seen him so drooped over the handle bars.
Come to think of it, I’m not sure he’s even married . . . .
