Yes great point witchy beast

Flat requires constant cadence for you to maintain speed, and if you are ok on climbing hills at reasonable pace and learn to descend efficiently undulating courses can be quicker!

I still wouldn't do Nice though

Austria is supposed to be an awesome race

Swimming yesterday with some more tumble turn practise thrown in at the end.  It is quite difficult to swim while laughing.

Been out for a run this afternoon.  5 miles, and Garmin says I averaged 9:12, which I am rather pleased with.  However, I think G may have had a wee technical hitch at the start as I apparently ran the first mile in 7:55:41.  This is unlikely for 3 reasons:  a) I have never, ever run a mile that quickly; b) It was uphill; c) when I turned to run back I did the same mile downhill in 9:23.  

But if it's on the Garmin it must be true, right?  Right?

Alas no Nursey - sometimes the sats are out to begin with, so it thinks you're somewhere else - I often start in the fields opposite my house, which means when I turn the corner at the bottom of the road, I'm often doing 4 mm pace!!

Picked the road bike up from the LBS after its service today - new bar tape, cables, bottom bracket, chain, rear cassette .... its all shiny and new looking  Look s too clean to take out and get dirty now!

Raf - please refer to Meldy's post to see what your answer should have been 

Unfortunately just that first mile was wonky, or I'd now be happily deluded and changing my name to Paula

Have been swimming on Wednesday (and think I convinced the lifeguard to do Outlaw  ), turboing last night (which went a slightly awry because I had Chrissie in one ear, but also had Masterchef on the telly which was a wee bit of a distraction), and running today, with no watch, which was lovely.

Have also had wee boy cat at the vet and he has broken a toe.  So he now has a splint and a big bandage, much to his disgust.  And a bill, much to my disgust.  I am in the wrong job.

No idea Melds, came down for breakfast and found him limping. Probably trying to scale the fireguard, curtains, bookcase ...
