I discovered an easy way to get a a few extra kms each ride, head out and around 8km in, realise you've forgotten your helmet. Skulking through back streets to get home again is sure to add an additional 9 to 10km, plus the 8 it takes to get back to where you were when you realised.

D: 59.2km
A: 530m

2 x 20 Deck squats
3 x 20ES Lateral step ups (25" box)
2 x 20 Box Jumps (26" box)
3 x 10 Box jumps (31" box)
3 x 10 Knee jump into box jump (20" box)

Jeff failed the primary tenant of box jumping (Put your feet on top of the box) and suffered some good damage. With two nurses in attendance all that was left for me to do was laugh and take photos, the photos will be up tomorrow.

I said I'd do TdB tonight, and my legs still felt perky, so I figured I had no excuse.

Turns out I was wrong about the perky, the Jeff's had stripped me of all my top end and left me blown before the top of every hill. A couple of times I vowed "I will stick to this wheel, even if it makes me spew", but failed long before that. The pain in my legs rose sharply with the terrain, while my heart rate and lunch stayed low(ish).

D: 45.7km
