My cycling goals for 2013 - Teresa Houghton | Rutland Cycling

   Words by Aaron Scott

   on 29/08/2013 18:48:00

Although only cycling for 4 years regular LoveCycling blogger Teresa has a number of cycling accolades under her belt. Whether riding London-Paris, the Alps, the Pyrenees or just commuting in London, Teresa is often riding. Due to other commitments though Teresa didn't spend as much time in the saddle as she'd of liked in 2012. Here she details how she plans to make amends in 2013...

2013! This year is a year of challenges. For a start, I need to recover and come back from one of the most fun, but also the most exhaustive year of my life.

2012 was a pretty eventful year. Using all but 5 days annual leave working on the track world cup in February at the Olympic Velodrome, which also served as a test event for the Olympics proper plus 22 shifts at the 2012 Olympics working across all of the cycling events (and doing the proper job on the other days).

If you tie in cycling trips to Flanders and the Pyrenees and 3 broken ribs as a result of a commuting accident, it's fair to say it was a manic year...

Before I knew it, it was 9am on Monday the 17th of December and my mind caught glimpse of 5pm Friday 21st of December and decided to slowly close down.

“Remember that holiday malarkey you so love Teresa? NOW is the time for a holiday!” It was Christmas. Thank goodness.

So the 2013 conversation started off as follows...

Conscience: “Teresa, you’re slow on the bike. Any idea why sweetheart?”

Me: “Well boss, let me think. I can definitely pinch an inch round my middle. I admit I should have gone a bit lighter on the Olympic workforce lunches (snacks, ice creams and full sugar pop), the pizzas in the evening after the Olympics when I couldn't be bothered were probably not necessary…(nor the curry or burritos for that matter).

Conscience: “What you are really telling me is you couldn't be bothered to cut up a lettuce, tomato and drain a tin a of tuna in the evening?”

Me: “Correct boss. Even a French omelette was a challenge”

Conscience: “Shame on you”

Me: “Sorry boss.

Conscience: “And your poor bike. So loyal, always saving you money, transports you from a-to-b. What about it?”

Me: “Whistles”

Conscience: “Teresa….”

Me: “I didn't really have time to do long rides, or spin classes, not good. I thought I had got myself back on it fitness wise after slowly slogging my way up and down the Pyrenees. But then someone knocked me off at some traffic lights. Ribs hit kerb. I yelped. That was it for another few weeks. And then it was Christmas…”

Conscience: “…meaning, Teresa?”

Me: “it meant copious amounts of delicious full bodied red wine, mince pies, roast dinners and Spanish Turrón. Sorry boss…”

Conscience: “2013 had better be good Teresa. Or I’ll make you take up running again and you know how much you hate that!”

So here we are. Flanders and the RVV are on the horizon. September sees an attempt at a sub 100 hour Raid Pyrenee. The diet has started – I'm down one dress/trouser size already. The long weekend rides are back on. Whilst having my own cycling club I've also joined a local club to abuse their weekend club runs, which start at sociable times (9am). Time to get that peloton cycling back to scratch and pick up some speed. Or rather, have people to try and show off in front of and get a little faster.

A couple of years ago my training partner and I took a decision not to take part in any local sportives ever again (based on the fact they’re usually on roads we could probably navigate with our eyes closed), this year may see the resurgence of the odd sportive, if only as a test to make sure I don’t come last!

This year is the year of becoming lean mean and faster. And get that medal on the Raid Pyrenee - Being the only girl in a club party of 10 doing the raid, I've got a few things to prove, not only to myself but to others.

Watch this space. I’ll review some kit along the way whilst I'm at it.
Dieting aside, what will make me faster?!
