After mending another puncture I set off under the guidance of my coach, Bob Pratt on my Thursday 10 x 20 second hill sprints. These are rugged! I am a strong hill climber when they go for 5km at a steady pace. However sprinting at full speed uphill is quite a different story.
Bob follows me around in his car and takes my times. I was delighted to find out that I had consistently done times comparable to last time with a non fully inflated back tyre. It was a cold evening and I was extremely glad to finish. Bob was pleased and said that he would make a cyclist out of me yet!
This session was a follow up from a hard 40 km race on Tuesday where I had the 5th fastest time. Considering I am about 35 years older than most of the fast riders in the club I am particularly pleased with my recent performances.
