Friday Feb 26 #

9 AM

MTB 1:32:46 [3] 24.39 km (3:48 / km) +375m 3:32 / km

Peloton of 2 for the arboretum coffee ride - legs feeling tired - time to rest up for the first of the MTBO 2021 series on Sunday.

Thursday Feb 25 #

6 AM

MTB 28:25 [3] 7.98 km (3:34 / km) +121m 3:19 / km

Car out of action for a few days so had to ride to running training - very dark this early in the morning (actually left closer to 6.30am and did not need lights). Took the quickest route thru the arboretum to the visitor centre to join the run group.
7 AM

Run 27:21 [3] 3.51 km (7:48 / km) +85m 6:57 / km

After riding to run group was pleased to find out today was more theory than practise. A few of the group had ran a hard and hot race in the Snowies on the weekend so perhaps the instructor was a bit easier on them. Anyway some more stepping practise on stairs - lots more other slow motion technique practise followed by short run thrus. Then had about 20 minutes to put theory into practise on the gravel track near the Margaret Whitlam pavilion. Back and forth a few times at varying pace.
8 AM

MTB 27:32 [3] 7.34 km (3:45 / km) +119m 3:28 / km

Ride home after run group - glad it was mainly downhill straight after the run - uphill towards the end tho to col de Warragamba.
4 PM

road cycling 33:09 [3] 10.97 km (3:01 / km) +40m 2:58 / km

And just for fun another ride - this time from home to pick up the car in Phillip - time for a beer.

Wednesday Feb 24 #

ride with Peter 1:40:40 [3] 40.62 km (2:29 / km) +391m 2:22 / km

Peloton of 4 for a cool and windy ride around LBG. In a radical move we visited a new coffee shop (The Warehouse) in Kingston in the old Causeway area (now known by the more up market name of Kingsborough Village). It is part of a small group of trendy shops built next to the faux Old Woolstore. Info on the Woolstore is here

Coffee was good altho the double expresso was stronger than at 38 - even tho the coffee shop is ran by the brother of the owner at 38. Lots of coffee discussion about landing on Mars - and if there is any rationale for going there.

Tuesday Feb 23 #

8 AM

Run 56:22 [3] 8.31 km (6:47 / km) +148m 6:14 / km
ahr:122 max:143

Cool southerly breeze set the scene for a run with Grant beside the Molonglo River next to Coombs suburb. Checked out two of the viewing platforms that have been nicely built overlooking natural ponds in the river then ran as far as the Closs Crossing before a short loop in the pine forest then back over the river at Southwell Crossing then back to the start point. Retired to the coffee shop in the new suburb of Denman Prospect which was full of tradies (both in the suburb and the coffee shop) and partook in a nice egg and bacon roll for $6 - pleased they offered a half portion as the normal one had two slices of bacon and two eggs (for double the price).

Monday Feb 22 #

3 PM

Swim 20:00 [3] 0.3 km (1:06:40 / km) +1m 1:05:34 / km

Arvo swim at Stromlo - very pleasant on a warm day.

Sunday Feb 21 #

9 AM

O race 34:31 [3] 4.63 km (7:27 / km) +65m 6:58 / km

ACT Sprint series at University of Canberra - made more challenging at 1:4000 scale and early parts of the course in the rabbit warren of laneways in the student accomodation area. Challenging course both technically and physically (the latter due to stairs, long distance and warm conditions). No real slip ups - just needed to be slow at the start to pick the route choices. Bit wide on 14 to 15 which added 3 sets of stairs downwards I could have avoided. Finished a bit over 2 minutes behind the reigning French M60 champ and even further behind Grant Mc.
12 PM

road cycling 29:46 [3] 11.69 km (2:33 / km) +170m 2:22 / km

Recovery session from the sprint - a couple of laps of the crit track then on the new bike path next to Coombs and Wright.
