Thanks for slowing down to my pace this morning Tim. The intervals were good... Left me in a bit of a daze at work which I suspect is a good thing (but not for my boss). Think we did something like 45km all up, so not all that bad for a Monday morning.

Pretty big cloud band coming...

Do you still have gym membership? Stationary bikes can do wonders when used properly.

Otherwise, rest is an essential and critical part of performance training. The only problem is, I've had too much rest already over the last 3 weeks. :cry:

Resistance training on a stationary bike will be the flavour of the week. But I did push myself out this morning for some loops in CP to pad out some more outdoor volume before the rain.

Don't worry once those boys and girls get on the velodrome, the vortex created will shift those clouds out to sea.

Regan was wrong about the Russian weather experiments....

Man I took about an hour to warm up after that, and my hands have now gone funny.

To make life worse though I was running late and decided to try jumping ahead of the bunch, and ride slowly on
The aero bars to wait for them, after a while I sped it up and just did it my self. I over took 2 or 3 bunches too :p
I think at least one was doing a set schede, and another group didn't seem that fast. But yeah,
It wasn't untill after the last hill that I found randwick, they had totally been cruising it! And yeah. I guess
It was good training any way though probably better single training than for the team event, totally
Not fast enough.

I nearly froze to death this morning, and couldn't keep up with a group I was riding with at all. I failed dismally, more than I have ever failed before.

I felt a bit sick to start with, and after all of that I felt even worse. I think I may be at the point of exhaustion and physically suffering from stress. Time to take a breather me thinks. I got sent home from work too :(
