Cycling race 28:58 [5] 10.0 mi (2:54 / mi) +105m 2:48 / mi
ahr:156 max:163 shoes: Giant A1

VCGH TT - 28.58 course PB by 42s! 16 degs, wind 14mph SW, pressure 1005. Wet road.
That went well! Decided to attack the course and make up time where I could. Lost time on the descent that was very wet with some gravel. Best sections were the hill and broken roads, suggesting improved strength. Moved saddle down 2mm and forwards another 4mm.

Cycling warm up/down 25:00 [3] 7.0 mi (3:34 / mi) +50m 3:30 / mi
shoes: Giant A1

12 PM

Body conditioning 1:30:00 [4]

Moving heavy office furniture to new office (took far longer than time recorded). Shock treatment to muscles I wasn't sure still worked, and made easier with someone still in the prime of life!

Saw GP today, who professed not to be an athlete and asked why does a lowered threshold heart rate matter when it ought to be rising? Not sure they were any the wiser, but fingers crossed, they did suggest a better hypertension approach.

Cycling race 26:17 [5] 10.0 mi (2:38 / mi) +80m 2:34 / mi
ahr:153 max:158 shoes: Giant A1

FRC Bentley TT - 26.17 best on course since 2013 which in the conditions was a very big surprise. Direct headwind out av 12 mph, gusting to 20 & 16.5 degs. Paced it well and time passed quickly. 14.10 for 5, 12.07 for 5-10. THR still too low.
Dug out the disc wheel, raised saddle 3mm and forwards by 6mm. Opened up hip nicely, but a shade too high. MIght get my TT mojo back this year after all?

Swimming 20:00 [2] 0.7 km (28:34 / km)

PP(25) - 25s until I relaxed and did some 50s. Note for the future: What you do between strokes makes a difference too.
Broke the golden rule, and more, by clashing hands with a girl going the other way. I apologised, only to discover she had lost her watch as result and neither of us could find it. It was white on white tiles! Later she came back to say it had gone into the next lane and been handed in. Oh, and then there was the locker that I couldn't open. A wee lass opened it for me with a gentle tug.
