Swimming 15:00 [2] 0.5 mi (29:59 / mi)

10m pool: good for drills & technique. 21 degs, warm enough to swim on & off with family. Just as well, as left wetsuit behind to save space in car & the faff that goes with it.

To work. Pre-holiday sorting out. PB by some way, thanks almost entirely to the new bike.

Cycling 1:17:00 [3] 23.05 mi (3:20 / mi) +340m 3:12 / mi
ahr:143 max:155 shoes: Giant A1

Work-Aldershot-home Another pre-holiday errand. Average even higher until Guildford..
Some right idiots out on Saturdays, three cars overtook coming the other way on the A323 leaving 0.5m gaps.


Cutting back on training has helped to reduce almost continuous DOMS. A planned week off the bike, with plenty of swimming instead.

Cycling race 27:12 [5] 10.0 mi (2:43 / mi) +70m 2:40 / mi
ahr:160 max:164 shoes: Giant A1

Maidenhead CC - H10/10 course Winkfield 17 mph SW, 20deg, 1012mb. Time approx.
Discovered Alton TTs finished last week. My legs felt good and rather than waste one of the very few days they have been OK, I found the nearest TT event. Only drove the course and had a 5 min wu, plus stretch. The open part of the course had the 17 wind at 40 deg headwind, 30s slower than normal I'm told. The club has a course 60s quicker.
Felt good and the course suited me. Maybe 10s lost with unfamiliarity, but maybe went harder through not knowing the course.
HR the highest its been this year and only 3 beats down on highest 4 yrs ago, which is a great relief. A good evening and legs felt good afterwards too!
Raised saddle 3mm, but could go another 3mm. Bars angled up 10 degs, could do with another 10 degs.

Cycling warm up/down 16:00 [3] 5.0 mi (3:12 / mi)
shoes: Giant A1

Cycling (Fartlek) 32:15 [3] 10.23 mi (3:09 / mi) +122m 3:02 / mi
max:151 shoes: Giant A1

Shere Bypass - 3 loops, fast on wide bypass and on the straight returning.
Saddle too far back and tipped up, so must reset at max point. Saddle needs returning to old position too! In fact all the adjustments need to be reset, with exception of shaving legs. (throwing kitchen sink at getting a seasons best this week). Not a pretty sight with so many white speckled patches. At least I can claim to be a real cyclist at last.


Spent an hour setting up bike for TT & found car was not available(!), so set off without 30 min safety allowance and promptly lost 15 mins due to a broken car, then I realised my cleat shoes were at home, so turned around. Added to which I might have be done for speeding. Just hope bad luck doesn't go in threes or fours.
