I went for a short cycle today as I decided given the expected temperatures I would be best not killing myself trying to get more training, even if the rides that tiny fraction harder because I only rode 3/4 of my training ride one day I'll at least be alive. So far training has been more or less going to plan, I have been good at ensuring I do the required distances as well as cross train to avoid injury while boosting my fitness further. I must say given my history I am most surprised that I am still in one piece and touch wood it remains that way.
Currently I am having what i feel is a well earned break from preparation of maps, camping gear, launch logistics, schedules et al and reflecting on the wod of work that needs doing over the next week. Here is what I need to do (for my benefit and your interest):
- Finalise maps and ensure the rout is ride-able (By Sunday)
- Work out a schedule of where we will be when, including times we will pass through/near towns in attempt to rally up support (By Monday)
- Write a list of everything we will need and check it against a list of what we have (By Sunday)
- Put bike in for service and get all the required parts (TODAY!!!!)
- Check my cycling Buddy is still alive (By Tuesday)
- Pick up "Cyclists Ahead" signs (On Wednesday)
- Build map poster for launch (By Thursday)
- Set up and attend Launch (On Thursday)
- Double check EVERYTHING... and then again (On Friday)
- Arrive at Opera House (On Saturday)
- Start Cycling (On Saturday)
I guess I better stop procrastination...
