51.89 mi in 03:04:10 hours at 16.91 mi/h on Giant Avail Advanced 2. [Cycling] Met with Ellviner, Euro and Guru (who was going mountain biking), 2 new bikes to look at and a Garmin...I had nothing of interest to show off. Trying to improve my Cemetery QOM time was stopped by glaring orange sun right in my eyes, couldn't see a bloody thing and had to lower my glasses, next time. Had a crack at 2KO climb where MG blasted past at the top, cruised up Telstra and then Ellviner lead myself and Euro out to better our Phoenix Sprint times, had nothing in the end but surprised to see I did in fact have a better time today...Thanks MG :) Good coffee at 2300, said our goodbyes and I headed for a lap of Love. Somebody waved at me as I was cruising up R2W, think it was GD. Home to eat and think about heading over to watch the Kermese, great ride.
20.95 mi on Giant Avail Advanced 2. [Cycling] After school duties headed to Belmont and back. Tempo from Adamstown to Belmont, was making good time until the pierced lollipop men stopped me for a bit at Redhead due to the slasher being on the track...bloody hell, don't they know about Strava times!!!! Not all bad, still managed an avg of 37 for the W2R and got a good workout at the same time. Cruised home from Belmont, hot and not much to report.
30.98 mi on Giant Avail Advanced 2. [Cycling] Met Guru on the love Track and cruised with him to Belmont, I headed onto Swansea/Caves solo for some tempo. Cross wind and phone call meant I hit Spuma late, but still included it in my tempo knowing my time wouldn't cut it today. Headed home into a pretty stiff head wind slowing me down but keeping my HR high. Found the shelter of the Love Track and cruised home slowly. The track has been getting a hair cut the last week, I just hope those council workers clean up after themselves.....must be a new trend of facial piercings as nearly all the workers faces were full of earrings, look like freaks with their lips nearly pierced together. Good ride, pretty hot by the time I got home.
15.85 mi on Giant Avail Advanced 2. [Cycling] After studying CTE's hills jigsaw puzzle ride from the other day, I made a little route for myself to fit into my training with about 20-25mins tempo on some hills. Why is it that hills seem like a good idea at the time but when you get to them they suck!! Anyway, took on Park Ave first up, I don't recommend this EVER before warming up first. Then on to Main Rd Cardiff, Grandview and on the way home found No Fay Out to get my name on the list, had the wrong gear but will know for the next time.. Managed to to put Gruplet and some other woman in their place on all climbs. Managed 5 QOM's and front page Strava honours with a top 10. Mixing it with the boys now!!! Hard ride with my baby, she's earning her keep :))
