Training for the Tour d’Afrique: Week 3

This week was great! I can feel myself improving little by little. Egypt would still knock me on my ass If I started today but hopefully another month will get me closer to a 170km day on the bike!

This week I did 40km on the trainer (boring!) doing intervals. On Saturday I did a 70km loop and followed that up on Sunday with a 95km loop. I was tired the next day but nowhere near as tired during the ride as I was last week. Great stuff!

The weather is getting much colder here now and it’s just holding above freezing during the day. This might be the last ice-free weekend that’s safe to cycle so I’m going to do 100km on Saturday and 130km on Sunday.

Some pics from the weekend!

Some inspiration if you’re on a trainer this week…
