This time of year can get a little crazy, but there is no reason why you shouldn't be getting your training done. Even though we'll be getting on a plane tomorrow morning to head to the far south of New Zealand, work is pretty much over for the year, so all it takes is a little bit of creativity to make sure you are getting your runs and rides in when you need to.

Saturday morning is usually a little more gentle, but we decided to do our usual Sunday ride out along the North Western Freeway, which means keeping up with Kirsty when she has a road bike, while I have my mountain bike. It was a warm morning which meant we were taking it a little bit easier for the training ride. We will be off the bikes for about 4 days while traveling away. Not really an issue when you're not working but when you're a creature of habit like I am, it can be a little stressful.

It's good to keep things in perspective and remember there is still a lot of time to get a lot done.

One thing to remember at this time of year is that with the hot nights, lack of sleep as well as dehydration can cause a lot of problems with training and racing output. I saw an advertisement saying that being dehydration but 2% could cause up to a 30% reduction in performance. Not sure if this is just advertising hype, but it is something to keep in mind, especially for people racing and training through the southern hemisphere summer.
