Made it back to the UK in one piece and bearing up through the festive period OK. Rather too much alcohol on a daily basis but I've been coping with the excessive Xmas eating happily :) Training not derailed too badly despite the 48 hours of travelling last week and sudden shock of cold British weather, though local pool closures have hampered the swim volume a bit. Most disturbingly my tan seems to have disappeared far too rapidly!
Only 4 weeks to Epic NZ, so trying to keep on track, though there's not much chance of many bonus overdistance rides pre-Epic given the shortage of daylight hours here! Its been dark by 4pm! (plus I'm sticking to the schedule, coach!)
Happy New Year!
