No shortage of training opportunities here in the Hautes Pyrenees. Now I have plenty of time to train I wonder how I competed and trained for all the triathlons from 1986 onwards with a job to do as well.
So I must focus on what works best and race as and when I can.

My favorite climb

Crosstrainerby CrosstrainerAug 22nd 2010
Up early and on the road for 7.30 as it was 36C yesterday and 34C forecast today. So reached the foot of the Col d'Aspin at 8.30 and climbed alone in silence. No one gets up early here so it was all to myself. Paced myself steadily as it has been a busy week's training. Blue skies and sunshine but the temperature was climbing for the later starters. The descent met plenty of cars camper vans and cyclists starting their climb. Reached Arreau at the foot and headed home with a strong tailwind that I had battled at the start. I love this climb as the views are to die for and it is a good rhythm although the last few K's make you work to the summit.
