June 3rd to 9th - ends in bike hell

Lots of training this week, plenty of swimming which I am really enjoying, and really pleased to set a new 400m pb at the end of the main set on Wednesday; previously 7:35 and put in a 7:30.   No idea where that came from but chuffed it's all going the right way.

Thursday was round 3 of the North Cheshire Grand Prix series in Bowden nr Altrincham.

It was a nice evening and thankfully it had cooled a little for the start.  2 laps that was flat and predominantly on road with a small section going through the Devesdale.  Finish time was a little slower than round 2 in 26:17, but happy with the result, enjoyed the race.  Next week we are back to Dunhan Massey for round 4.

Sunday ended the week on a monster bike ride in the Peak District, 48 miles of hills including Snake Pass and Holme Moss and lots of other nasty ones in between.   Main mistake was trying to do the ride on a 12-23 cassette. It was a lovely day for a ride and enjoyed the effort but I think I was a little ambitious in attempting it at all, but it will stand me in good stead for future training efforts.
