So yesterday I had a busy day. It started with a nice 7mile commute in the morning. Unfortunately it was raining and I forgot to start my Garmin till halfway there. The morning school was lovely and we managed to get the kids out for a while, had to bring them in eventually as they were getting very cold though.
Then the excitment started I had to get from here over to Warrington in my lunch break. I was suprised when I plotted the route that it was only 11miles but my long transfers have always been in company leading to me worrying about it less. I set off into the rain and a headwind. Tried riding on the drops but couldn't reach the brakes which just scared me! Felt like I was making good time but no looking at the time and stressing myself out! Arrived and I was there 15minutes earlier than our official arrival time. Had managed an average of 14mph - very fast for me!
Next it was time for the second sprint of the day, Warrington to the Doctors in Bolton. This time it was 17miles and there was one nice climb. It was going well till Leigh then I had to start climbing. At this point I remembered I was going to bring gears as I was expecting tired legs and a climb. No choice now I had to keep pushing. Got to Doctors at 5pm for a 5:15pm appointment so good timing. He was only running 45minutes late so it was a good job I had remembered a magazine. I was his last appointment of the day and we had a nice chat about 24hour racing. He keen for me to do it, has some idea that I am superfit! He also has a good idea why I'm not sleeping so hopefully something is going to happen there.
Next week I may look at a longer route home as it is time to start getting some longer rides if I am going to do this little race!
