Calpe 2k17 – Mission Get Fit Quick

Having arrived in Calpe this afternoon, settled into the villa and met all the lads, i have a very clear idea in my head of what i want and need to get out of this month. I start this month long adventure with i’d say 90-95% of my health. Not ideal but a darn sight better than last week.

My first race of the year is in exactly 5 weeks, to the day. I am planning to start my 2017 season, a big year for me, at the North Road Hardriders 40km TT. A fairly well known hilly 40km time trial just north of London. I would like to go well here, or at least have a hint of good sensations in the legs, and start the season off well. I feel like i spent a long time last year getting into the season, not really getting any results or going anywhere quickly in the early stages of the season. I would like to change that this year. I want to leave Calpe with some half decent form, allowing a week of recovery and then into the North Road with the mythical ‘good legs’. This seems like a long way away for me right now.

“My condition is less than ideal, ah” – A villa few of British guys putting on Belgium accents

The target then is pretty clear. I have a month to go from effectively a 2 week break, to hilly 40km time trial legs. Which by all training books and methods, should not be possible…

I am going to fight to prove these wrong though! I am in the best early season cycling location in Europe, even if it does seem like it at the moment with torrential rain which i am told has been constant for the last 2 days. But this is set to clear up as of Tuesday, so for the next few days i just have to suck it up and go climb some mountains in the rain, and begin my intrepid journey from flop to fitness…
