Weekending 31 Aug 08

Monday: Matthew Street Festival. Great day, caught the sun. Saw some good tribute bands.
Tuesday: Work, OT. Gym shut.
Wednesday: Breakfast at the Eureka then a Wirral ride, 47 miles. Got a call from my mum that my dad was in hospital and my brother needed taking the airport as he is emigrating to Australia. Told him not to mention the GB cycling team.
Thursday: Started to lay the laminate flooring that I was going to start Wednesday. If your going to dig a hole for yourself you may as well make it a deep one. Bailed out at 9 pm with it 3/4 done.
Friday: Work, still aching in the legs from Thursday. Obviously using a totally different muscle group. On call.
Saturday: Same as Friday and I’m still hurting.
Sunday: Work. Better but it’s still there. Only had the one ride of note this week. Ordered a Tacx Imagic turbotrainer as I plan to do more indoors as the nights draw in.
A lot of it is to do with the work/life balance, last year it was in my favour, this year it is tipping the other way(if I let it).
Lost out on some Ebay items I was bidding for. A Discovery Channel shirt signed by the 2007 team including Armstrong went for  $700. When I say the team, everybody had signed it. The other items were Dura-Ace for time trialing and I lost out by £1.
Ride wise a poor week if you exclude the Wild Wales last Sunday.
Buying a fancy Turbo Trainer is a turning point, I just can’t fit the miles in anymore.
Countless people say you need to do the miles and to a large extent it is true.
Next week promised to be better but a fair bit of catching up to do, still that floor lay.
