Everesting Beeley moor and more

Firstly, well done to Pee Jay for successfully ‘everesting‘ Beeley Moor over the weekend. I believe he was 3rd UK rider to complete this unique challenge.

If you want to see a decent interval session, have a look at his graphs for his ride on Strava

Shopping baskets allowed. One for Dave Brailsford’s marginal gains.

I had a weekend off racing. I was marshalling at the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence ‘tri a  triathlon’ in Portishead.

Because I wasn’t racing, naturally enough it was a float day with pb’s set across the country.

One pb of particular note was Movistar Pro Alex Dowsett smashing the 10 Competition record taking a whopping 25 seconds off to reduce the 10 mile TT mark to 17.20. That’s an average speed of 34.5 mph or something suitably ridiculous. A great ride by a top pro.

 

Today I did seven * one minute intervals up Boars Hill.  That’s 7 minutes of training, but my mind was wandering to the idea of everesting something.
