Going For Gold – Week 5   Leave a comment

Sunday April 25th – a 50K ride up through Rundle Park and Heritage Park then up along Meridian Street until it stops at the Manning Freeway.  The temperature was a cool 9C but with the sun out it was pretty comfortable.

April 30 Feeling discouraged that my injured calf muscle has taken a major turn for the worse today (for no obvious reason). I’m fearing it will prevent me from doing the Golden Triangle bike tour in 3 weeks. I can barely walk but will have to try riding this weekend then make a decision. Considering at an alternate challenge – the Tour de l’Alberta in July and in fact did register for the event. I would like to do the 185K ride but will make the distance decision  closer to the event.

Saturday May 1st – just an easy 20K  ride up River Road and McKinnon , to test and not stress my calf muscle. It seems that as long as I’m not out of the saddle, pushing big gears uphill I think I’ll be able to resume training. Might try for 40 or 50K tomorrow.

I only got 70K of training in this week, with only 4 weeks to go until the Golden Triangle – a bit discouraging.
