Canada Challenge Update:
Ten weeks to go, so things are heating up, so to speak.
I'm trying to juggle my training load in with an increased workload and family time. Not easy. Most days now I am up at 3:00am, to put in a hard indoor session and then try get to work by 6:30 - 7:00am. If it's on-road riding then it's a 9:00am start at work. In short I have to increase training to over 20 plus hours per week.
But I knew all this before committing to this ride, so I am not whinging.
I know in ten weeks time my body will be brutalised and my mind pushed to breaking. But my biggest fear is not the physical and mental hardships ahead, it is a failure to meet our fundraising goals. This is what stresses me out. I can take physical failure, but I find it much harder to take the failure of setting out to achieve something for disadvantaged children in the communities we work, only to fail them.
I don't know why people would support me again in the cause I am passionate about. Riding around Australia had people in disbelief. Now, it may seem to people that this is easy for me, when it isn't. It's out of my hands, I am just hoping that people appreciate either what I am trying to do, or more so, appreciate the cause we are riding for.
