This weekend I had the most awesome 4 day weekend!
Thursday was lazy, but Friday all the exercise started! I took a nice 12 mile ride into the Vale of Glamorgan to meet a friend for lunch at the fancy Vale Hotel and Resort.
And then I did a time trial! A time trial is a timed race where you can't draft and you cycle as fast as you can over a certain distance, in this case it's 7.5 miles. I started 1st and the other 17 racers started after me, 1 minute apart.
Position number 1 makes me feel like I am awesome but actually it is reserved for the slowest rider....
On Saturday I did park run, and came in with an average 30minutes for the 5k. Need to run more.
On Sunday I did an AJAX ride. 70 miles long with an average speed of 16mph, 3,000 feet of climbing all done in 4 hours and 20 minutes. I'm finally moving up in the club rides and feel like a pretty confident "slower middle group" rider as opposed to a "steady" rider.
Here's the Strava:
In total I've cycled 120 miles this weekend, which is a really good result. And now, I'm tired! I've got a morning gym session tomorrow and track cycling in the evening so I'm really going for it with this fitness stuff at the moment!
Good start to June!
