    Bit too far really... I've only got 90mins or so as it's a pre-work session. Hence why it's likely to be turbo. Corkscrew is a nice idea though

    Gonna do that ragu tomorrow i think.

    For a quick dinner tonight i just had garlic sauteed chorizo, mushrooma and kale on toast with poached eggs. Was 11/10. Chorizo makes all things good.

    Where in Herne Hill / Crystal Palace etc area to do 3-4 minute efforts? despite all the ramps in the area, I just can't find any that work for me or are quiet enough.

    Was planning on doing this on the turbo tomorrow but now it's warming up in the mornings I can't really face the idea of grinding my mind away indoors when i could get on the road.

    I'd be doing it super early, like, 6.15ish.

    College Road is a void suggestion. Speed bumps piss me off.

    Yeh, I reckon it's the best GT. Easily the most brutal and there's always some super-exciting stages.
    I tend to find it's those medium mountain type ones that cause the most havoc and throw up some interesting results. Am looking forward to a sky - astana dingdong in the high mountains for Landa vs Nibs

    Risotto is a good shout.

    Some sort of massive stew to freeze was what I was thinking. Shitloads of garlic and tomato-ey sauce

    I got given a sackload of mushrooms by the ace grocers in herne hill the other day that need eating asap. As I'm a regular there and they know i eat anything and everything, they gave them to me rather than bin them.

    What should i do with them?

    Cool thanks @dubtap! Thought I'd seen there were problems or blocks somewhere, now I remember it was Barack coming to say hi to Dave

    I've not done morning laps for ages but may do tomorrow super early, is there any reason why I shouldn't? It's not closed off or anything is it? random question but just wanna be sure!

    This is exactly what's happening to me. I'm shite at doing anything over threshold indoors, but really need to work on my vo2 etc in general, so am braving it on the turbo as not much time for outside rides.

    Am doing over-unders and 5min etc intervals and my heart rate is about 120%, but my power is absolutely nowhere. I'm hoping that at least working my heart that hard is going to do something beneficial....
