What to do when it rains and hails in summer

There was only one thing for it – and that was hard, thigh busting, high intensity training. It was the only way to stay warm and maintain focus during my training week in Zurich!

The result was nice! I Strava QOM-ed my local climbs and even Klausen Pass (despite galeforce headwinds) and I was very encouraged to do more as a result. So the week hasn’t been a write-off despite the weather and I feel as though I have made progress.

Klausen Snow Walls – only for the brave and one random guy we saw on a Flyer e-bike

After 5 days of moderate to intense riding I need a break. Finally the sun has come out in Zurich but my legs are telling me they would like to recover from the hard rides!

There is, as usual, plenty to do. I have also decided to ride in the Irish National Road Championships in Ireland in June. So I guess the next few weeks ill keep my head down and practice my sprinting technique! The next race up is the two day women’s UCI1.2 in Gippingen where I’ll race elite. Stay tuned!
