This last week was a bit of a disaster as flu hit me on sunday evening after the 117km race for victory race starting at gold reef city. Today I went back to the saddle at Robbies for the first time but I only did 45min easy training in roder to gauge my performance and see how i feel.
The race on sunday went really well, lovely route and a very good vibe. First race over 100 km and it felt great, it took me 4hours to complete withouth pushing too hard. I am still struggling with nitty gritty stuff that happens on a road race, strategy, bunch riding, etc. I kept jumping from one bunch to the next as all of them were very slow. I guess I will have to push harder in the begining to try and stay with the main field were the strong guys are.
I will keep you guys posted in the training.
Do I need a power meter?
