Romancing the Angels

No, not the angels that yours truly thought were coming to whisk him away from this world during the third of three hill climbing blocks... The Angels was the title of the feast of turbo training that Rupert had lined up for us.

It consisted a  more-challenging-than-normal warm up with a few attacks thrown in for spice, followed by three over and unders. For the uninitiated, that means 1 minute over your threshold level and 1 minute just under.  Times five.  Then a little rest and recovery before doing it again... and again.

As ever the soundtrack and witty captions helped. Personally, I loved the one just before the final block that said: "OK, you may want to remove young children and mirrors from the room... this ain't going to be pretty".

Finally, a special mention to Kim and Kevin showing that true cycling couples can still find romance on Turbo night.

Thanks as ever to Rupert for organising.
