It’s almost time…

Filed under: Cycletta — by carolspage @ 19:18

It HAS been quiet on this blog, and for that I apologize.

I had a bit of a setback in Greece – I ended up with heat exhaustion. Not fun.  We got back home a couple of weeks ago and I just slept for the first few days.

On my first session with the trainer after our return, I told him about my heat exhaustion. He didn’t train me that night and I was told to do no training at all until I saw him again the following week.

So it’s been ages since I’ve done any real work. Well, weeks, anyway. Since before I left for Greece and that was 25th August!

I went out on the bike this past Sunday and it wasn’t pretty.

BUT – I’m feeling much better now.  Had a great session with Tom the Terrific Trainer last night, and we talked through a lot of things.

I have ordered a gel cover for the bike’s seat….and padded cycling shorts for MY seat.

That’s one end taken care of.

The most important end, which sits on my shoulders, well…..we’re having ongoing discussions about how great it’s all going to be.

Tom knows I can do this. I know I can do this.

I’ve gone from “I think I can” to “I will“.

…and I will. I am, once again, excited to be taking part and really looking forward to 2nd October.

Sunday morning, at 9.40am, I will start pedaling and I won’t stop until I’ve crossed the finish line.

Cycletta North? It’s going to be great!



  1. keep up the GREAT work!

    • I’ve drunk so much water, and eaten so many carbs…I never thought I’d be tired of pasta and potatoes! This is going to be great!
