The Quiet Time

It’s the ‘off season’ for indoor training (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), so things around Sufferfest Studios have been a little quiet. I’ve been adjusting to life in Singapore, the family is settling in well, getting my head around the new job (loving it!), and generally being occupied with things other than dastardly sinister training videos. So, aside from a bit of customer service here and there, The Sufferfest has taken a bit of a back seat.

I’ve been out on the bike, but not on long training rides – rather, I’m commuting to work and back by bike…and I’m loving it. The traffic on some roads is a bit dicey, but for the most part its a great, energizing ride through some great jungle and urban landscapes. On the days when I have to take the bus, I’m fairly heartbroken.

That’s slowly changing. I’m starting to put together the workout for the next Sufferfest, which will be a bigass climbing monster. I want to see if you can keep up with Contador. The plan is to have it out in September, with another one close behind in October. I’ve also been working on a logo, some t-shirt ideas, finally getting the videos onto DVD, and figuring out how to set-up the website for more products. It’s still weekends and evenings work when the family is asleep, but it’s great fun.
