Monday. Once again, whats that all about ?
Let me see, went to the track on Friday, 12 lap scratch, almost last. 500M sprint, THIRD ! Had to ride hard to get it, big Joe R cam flying past after 200M, then Doug P, someone else started to come past in the finishing straight so I really wound it up. Then a 10 lap points, felt knackered, was going for a point on the 1st lap but it just went mad. Then a 20 lapper, spent all my time closing gaps as people blew in front of me. Had a go at the finish but I was whacked.
Saturday had a nice steady plod round Ullenhall. Then up the ladder to wash the windows ! Bought some wine for the evening, nice and sunny and warm, so had the candles round the garden and sat out.
Sunday, left at 0730 (!) to ride the Midland TR '16. Didn't use my aero bars, even though I took them. did a time of 42.59. This is the last time this course is being used, which is a shame.
My times are; 2001, 44 something, May this year 41.07. I wanted to get under 40 minutes, too breezy this time. Waters-Peach did 39.50, Peter did 41.0. But they both had low-pro bikes, and aero helmets ! Nice ride home though Baddesly Clinton and Lapworth, was feeling pretty done in, stopped and eat an energy bar and felt better after that.
Went a walk over the Lickeys with David, then collected some conkers from by Hopwood. Not so good as last year though.
and yes, bought 6 tins of lager and drank them in the garden.
What about my season now its almost over ? Well, lets see what my last races bring.
