Riding in the rain? In January? A 39 year old? It's about as hardcore as it gets!

80 wet kilometres. Will this make me stronger? Who knows....

A night time roller session brings the kilometres up to a virtual 140 km.

Thursday's training:

  • Road (80 km)
  • Rollers (150 HR) x 80 mins
Chance to hit the road this week.

Monday was a sunny day but snow overnight forced me to take the car. Some stepping and rollers at night.

Clear skies on Tuesday make for a very cold morning. Still great to be on the bike though. Strong wind and rain on the way home. I warm myself up with some hill climb repeats near home.

Wednesday was cold again. But commuting to Nishiyama gives me a chance to knock up some miles. Add to this a session on the rollers at night and it's a good piece of training (100 virtual kms).

Monday's training:
  • Stepping machine (approx 150 HR) x 70 mins
  • Rollers (150 HR) x 90 mins

Tuesday's training:

Road (Shindou SFR hill repeats x 7) (50 km)

Wednesday's training:

  • Road (55 km)
  • Rollers (150 HR) x 70 mins

The strange spring like weather continued into Saturday. The power of facebook got a group of 7 on the road.

Even in the rain it's warm enough. Through and off. Easy on the back. 160 ~ 170 HR on the front. 180 HR + on the climbs.

This is the type of training we should be doing in March / April to get ready for the JCRC & JBCF races at Gunma CSC.

Of course it hurts in January!

Saturday's training: Road (106 km, 510 m climbing)

Sunday's training: free squats x 800


First ride on the road in a while. The coast is the place to be. Feel the benefits of lots of roller time this winter. Cruising along nicely.

A chance meeting with Kenta in Teradomari. Chance to test the legs. Into a headwind. 38 kmph / 170 HR. Not bad for January.

Later 5 x SFR climbs (50 × 12) behind the power station.
