|Thankfully I don't need to run up there.|
Wednesday I opted to rest the knees and get on the bike so I went a ride up and over the Col Des Montets and then down to Switzerland and up to the top of the Col Forclaz , I haven't done much riding this season and found it tough going especially since it was about 33 degrees. I was pouring with sweat but it was an ace workout and I was out for just short of 3 hours and covered a distance of about 50 ish kms. I got home and then got the lift up Planpraz and made a rapid 900m descent back down to Chamonix to work on my fast footwork on the uneven trails.

It was a great 3 days training although I would have like to get up in the High Mountains for some climbing I knew at start of season that climbing was going to take a hit until after the CCC so its run run run until September now , then I can get the axes out and start to scare myself again.
