Last Wednesday I got one of my New Years resolutions out of the way.
I spent a few hours with James O’ Donnell at http://www.bikefit.ie getting my bike position improved.
When I go to a hair dresser I tend to bury my head in the 3 month old copy of Hello magazine. I answer the hair dresser’s first two questions in Single syllables, there by establishing a twenty minute period of peace and quiet. Unfortunately for James when I go for a bike fit I do not do the same thing. I spent 90 minutes telling James all about my previous 10 years of cycling. Telling some anecdotes twice.
James quietly went about his work, Politely listened to my waffling and occasionally imparted some carefuly chosen advise.
It was enjoyable and informative. I left with my saddle adjusted upwards, my cleats corrected and headed to the Internet to try to find a wider pair of shoes and a shorter stem.
I’m liking forward to getting some kilometres in to see how the new positions suits.
Ireland is in flood and with work busy my training miles in 2014 are considerably reduced on last year.
I am sitting at a conference in Athlone looking out at the Shannon in flood and wishing I were out on the road.
Diet going well, this is easy
Diet not going well, this is delicious

Cycling in the Ballyhouras in gusts of 130kph. Brilliant!
I have started riding with the Kilmallock cycling club. There are no shortage of people faster than me so keeping my Nee Years resolution has been a breeze
After last year’s successful ‘Everything Matters’ may I present my guiding words for 2014 …
My WordPress app continues to lose my blog posts and I am finding it hard to find the time to rewrite all my missing posts. Here is a month of bloggs in one go ….
Pouring rain, gusts of over 100kph and flooded roads, spring has arrived.
Blogs have been few and far between
recently and ordinarily this is a sign that I am going through a blue period where my training declines and my weight climbs. Not so on this occasion I have mostly be experiencing writers block.
Last weekend I managed to write a few lines and attach a few photos. I pressed the button to upload and minutes later I got a message saying that the upload failed and my post was nowhere to be found. I was too tired and frustrated to rewrite the passage and so in protest I have ignored WordPress for seven days
