ahr:137 max:159

Beautiful Nissan Trailseeker race in the Hemel en Aarde (Hermanus)

Started at the back of B bunch (3/6) and so spent most of the race working my way through the field. Probably a good thing, because if I had started any further forward, I probably would have died at the end

I was feeling pretty good until about 45kms, where there were steep climbs and really broke my legs. The last 10kms were a sufferfes of note. Still an epic day out!

I regularly remind myself that I am not always the brightest crayon in the box

Take today for example: I cycled all the way to swimming (with a couple of detours), waited for 10 minutes, checked the schedule and then realized it was this legs are still pretty stuffed, so maybe it isn't such a bad thing ahead of tomorrow

Headed out to Canterbury Drive for some strength intervals on my mountain bike. Coincidentally met Celeste and Luke there, so did 7*4 minutes worth of strength (with 4 minutes rest). Legs were feeling pap, especially after number 5

Then we did a loop through Constantia before heading back home
