MC, the phone is dead, but shiny new one arrived, so just waiting for the changeover of number as I don't want the hassle of a new number and spend time learning how this new one works (need a teenager for a few hours to teach me).
I need a rest Cake, but I didn't do any running at the weekend, just managed to fall off my bike (another fail to unclip in time) and then left my phone in kit and washed it, so no mobile for a few days.
Only bruised and sore but feel like I have been run over, so skipped this mornings swim and started work early instead.
Hoping to meet up with Dustboy and Soup Dragon for a ride at the weekend.
Good work by those running, marshalling and cycling to train stations.
I did a 10 mile TT on Saturday morning, hard work but enjoyable at the same time. Seemed very posh with a man to hold the bike for you to get a decent start, had to relax as it felt very scary. I slowed down too much for the first junction then got into the hang of it, sweeping through the others without touching the brakes. I managed to hit a top speed of 39.4mph downhill and averaged 15.1 for the whole thing which is super speedy compared to the usual 12mph, shows how much holding an aero position helps. Good cakes and hot drinks afterwards.
Spent the rest of the weekend puppy sitting. Did nip over to the Bacchus race at Denbies vineyard but only saw one pirate.
