With M but on my new bike up Mt Pleasant and down to Sumner. Very slowly descending with lots of stops. Pretty sore by the bottom but also pretty excited. I do need another lower gear or something though...

Run 46:18 [3]

A very wet jog from the SOT up Latters Spur and down the Harry Ell. Thought about going further but then the wind picked up and I became even more of a drowned rat.

Run 1:10:00 [3]
shoes: Merrell Allout Rush (#2)

With the gang up Bowenvale valley then along the tops and down the zig zag and old Bowenvale. My legs felt shattered so was a struggle but I guess it's going to be like this until the end of TT season so I better learn to suck it up again!

Road Bike warm up/down 30:00 [3]
shoes: Louis Garneau Revo XR

From work through the traffic and out to Old Tai Tapu. Sort of feeling a bit of dread thinking about the TT!
6 PM

Road Bike race (Old Tai Tapu TT) 25:27 [3] 16.0 km (1:35 / km)
shoes: Louis Garneau Revo XR

Here we go again. First TT of the season and it was tough (surprise surprise). Pushed hard even when I really really wanted to stop. M was pushing a slightly higher gear than I really would have liked most of the return journey but sometimes you just have to man up, especially when you have no say in the matter!

Joe is FAST. No surprises there I guess.
7 PM

Road Bike warm up/down 32:00 [3]

Home again. SO hard. Pretty much had nothing to give from around about the Dyers Pass roundabout. So hungry, so empty.

Run 50:07 [3]
shoes: Merrell All Out Charge

Bit of a jog to loosen up from home up Albert Tce to the hut thingy then down Farm Track with a bit of a detour to get home. Massive headache from too much rich brownie at afternoon tea but the run might have actually helped. Legs took some time to come to a more acceptable feeling.
