First attempt at Fast 2

Today I tried my first attempt at Fast 2. I didn’t expect to last until Christchurch but managed to stick with it until Preston Point Road. The small hill was enough to get me gapped enough that I was dropped. Still managed to make it back to the raffles with my fastest Thursday time so more than happy with that. Up until when I got dropped I had an average speed of 39.5 kp/h

Another Sunday another double header

I seem to be having trouble getting out of bed for the weekday rides but for some reason I manage to pull it off for the Sunday morning double header. Well at least the last two weeks.

Was not feeling very fresh and I suffered for most of the ride today. This mornings short hills ride consisted of Kahuna (Canning Mills Road East) and it hurt. I was it the red zone for most of the climb and I had a 28 tooth gear on the back due to the fact it was Carlos’s wheel. Even then I still was not happy. The thought of giving up crossed my mind but I knew I would not get back on so had to get through it.

By the time I reached the top my day was done. I was done.Still with a good 30 – 40 odd kms to go until home it was a matter of just get through it.
