Painfully slow start to the club ride this morning. Josh and I were hanging back with the last guy (my heart rate was 80). Definitely a difficult balance between being inclusive and when it's just a bridge too far

From town Josh and I headed off at a steadier clip. Over Suikerbossie, Chappies, Black Hill and home via Kalk Bay and Muizenberg. Such a wonderful day and really enjoyed the time out there

I did these on campus, up the hill towards the sports centre. And foolishly, I left my socks at home, so ended up running without them and getting blisters...
