As I get older the speed slides off me like shit off of a shovel, but is it a case of use it or lose it?
According to Joe Friel it is …..
I have made the conscious decision to do more of the cycling that I enjoy and less of what I don’t, so training really has taken a back seat whereas enjoying cycling is firmly on the front foot I am enjoying my bike more than ever.
I have lost a good minute off of my 10 mile time trial time against last year so I wonder how much of this is age and how much is not training?
Joe Friel has made a study and indications are that it’s a case of use it or lose it.
Guess what? Training works!
I am now 3 minutes slower than as a junior so there is no getting that back, but perhaps I can gain back the minute if I am prepared to train again.
Hope you enjoyed my own personal Eroica from back in the day when I think I used to be fast!
