I’ve been off the bike for almost two weeks, due to Christmas preparation and work, although I did go out with my sons yesterday for a short ride around the block. I should hopefully get a decent ride in tomorrow. The good news is that I’ve been given the all-clear by the cardiologist so I can now start planning my winter training properly. I can also book my velodrome beginners session which I got as a birthday present! I was worried that I wouldn’t get the all-clear and so wouldn’t be able to try sprinting around the track. I’m sure I won’t get to go full speed anyway in a beginners session but I’m really looking forward to it.
