So I got out on the bike today, even on Boxing Day. It actually felt great, even in the cold. I rode to my in-laws and really devoured the Christmas lunch. It was 2 hour ride but I feel great for having done it. I've realised  that I've been focusing on the date of the event and am a little unsure of the way I'm going to approach the training so I've been looking for a coach to help. There have been a few setbacks and I haven't found the right one as yet.

My rules are that they need to be a successful active cyclist, someone that has been there, seen it done it and understands what it takes to achieve at a high level. They also need to be a great coach, which is something that is not always the greatest skill of a top performer.

The search is on..
