To be perfectly frank, 2015 was an arsehole of a year. It goes without saying that Winnie's birth was a positive, but any other bright spots were few and far between.
Making endless sacrifices and working myself to the point of physical and mental incapacitation is no way to live.
So for 2016, Fuck. That. Shit.
I'll be quitting the night job (it's a nice job but being awake at that time is no good for me) and focussing all my energies on cycling for one last year, with the ultimate goal of competing in the national TT champs at the start of 2017. And i'm not going to be there just to make up the numbers either!
Having worked an excruciatingly boring (but very lucrative) security job on New Year's Eve, the 1st was a rest day, followed by 26k on the Shiv yesterday, and a short MTB roll with mates this morning. Tomorrow is another rest day and then things get serious again.
