Recovering. Not feeling too bad, but decided I'd earned a day off

7 AM

Road cycling race 5:42:10 [4] 204.71 km (35.9 kph) +1285m
ahr:145 max:176 slept:5.5

Double Century with the UCT First Team. Absolutely brutal...

We started off at what felt like suicide pace (my average heart rate for the first 110kms was 155 - for perspective, my average heart rate for the Two Oceans was 160). I survived for 90kms before dropping off and sitting behind another team to the neutral zone. I caught up to UCT at the water point

We started again for the 40km stretch between the water points. I lasted just over 10kms before dropping off. Sat behind Paul's team (from Olympic cycles) with Richard, Gregg and Aaron until the water point.

I then swapped bikes with Matt, because he had broken his derailer and was definitely stronger than me. Rode the last 40kms jumping between trains on 1 gear. The final 3 climbs were so hard, I almost had to walk. Fortunately I finished within 10 minutes of the team, so we won the prize for first team with 12 across the line.

The team did 4:50 and finished 7th overall, which we were super stoked about
