slept:8.0 (rest day) shoes: Basso

tired enough today in the morning. took a new cycling routechoice that saved me, i would guess, about 5 seconds!
Felt pretty great on the way home, though it might just be that these new dublin road surfaces are still great!
then i got home and heard horrible grinding noises from my front axle. looks like the bearings could be in trouble but the axle is horribly jammed in placing making taking it apart with my current toolset (ie none) next to impossible.
bring it to a shop 2moro is the plan

pretty happy with the pace to be honest
