Apart from not getting enough sleep as Ali didn't get home till late last night and I woke up early I feel suprisingly good today. My legs weren't sore and I felt like riding would be fine. I did an easy loop over to rivington (well as easy as you can with 900m of climbing) but I took it really easy on the hills, I spun up the commonwealth down keeping my heart rate at 120bpm - we won't mention my speed.
I'm still feeling really chuffed with yesterday, although to lots of people it won't seem fast, to me it was so much faster than I expected! I'll be back next year. The event was so well organised, followed such a good route and was a fantastic challenge. The question is can I go sub 8 hours next year to get a silver certificate?
Average Speed 7.6 mph
Average HR 114 bpm
Just noticed I have done 1000miles for the year off-road.
