On Saturday at 5pm, I finished the Pan Celtic Race 2022 ultra endurance bicycle race.
I really wasn’t sure how it would go. My training had tailed off in the 3 months prior to the race. But I got the bike ready and packed the same as in the previous races – with a lot of spares and tools in case of mechanicals – as my top goal was to finish the thing.
But I pushed quite hard on this one, with more of a race mentality. So I maximised my day lengths by sleeping less, trying to be efficient at stops, and went at as reasonable pace as I could sustain.
