Well that’s it, goodbye to the UK and off to Australia. I’m all packed into 2 bags, somehow everything I need for the next 10 months fits. My bike bag can take 2 pairs of wheels along with the bike frame and a few other bits and pieces. Weighed them and neither bag is too heavy, on the other hand I definitely am! For once I don’t think I’ve forgotten anything and I’m ready with some time to spare. If I’ve missed anything when I get there, well I’ll have to buy it.
I arrive on Saturday and I’m counting Sunday as day 1 of the new training regime. Back down to race weight, better diet, plenty of training and new levels of fitness. No more comments about looking like a ghost in race photos too I hope! That’s it for now a mercifully short post after the last couple of days. Next time I’ll be on the other side of the world.
