This session was by far my most challenging one! We headed out towards Rugby and identified a nice sizeable hill. The objective of the session was to get some serious hill practice in. Travelling on a straight road isnt a major problem buut tackling hills is and for someone like me who is a non cyclist its a challenge in itself! After discussions with the group we decided that we would pratice on this hill. We ended up doing around 18 rounds of going to the top and then back down again...I was pretty much exhausted by the end of it but alhamdullilah felt good and hopefully makes the prospect of tackling hills a little less daunting.
The next training milestone will be to do a long distance ride around 60 -70 miles to see how we all cope as a group.
