Julian Dean Diary
IPOD. Thankfully nowadays, with all the top Kiwi music, I have had no need for a TV? although internet access wouldn?t have gone astray?.
No worries though. I think that it?s been good for me to be here. It has helped me understand why the French race the way they do. They train like they race: hard from the start until they blow and then the ride gets progressively easier toward the end ?coz everyone is buggered. I have suffered a fair bit over the first couple of days. The guys are going pretty hard though so we?ll see how it is later in the week. I?m sure that I?ll start to improve. Although I don?t think I?m actually too bad. I?m just trying to stick to my training plan and train in the zones that I need to at the moment. I?m not here to train like it?s a race. That?s not what I need to be doing.
So we?ll see how it goes. I?ll let you know at the end of the week.
