Melbourne - Mordi - Commute:
The weather was set to be hot, my week is set to get busy, so I aimed to get a roll down to Black Rock on my way to work. A few extras to flush out all the evil left over from last nights intervals.

I got rolling and found myself beside and old codger on a gorgeous steel concorde roadie. We chatted about the usual shit, none of it important, but when we reached Black Rock and he said he was heading to Mordi, I made the snap decision to do the same.

I half regret that decision, as we turned it became very obvious that we'd had a tailwind. Not just any tailwind, one seemingly born in the fiery pits of hell. I went through 3 bottles in the 25 odd km between the turn around and the CBD.

In other news it looks like I'm back to racing the nationals on Saturday. They're waiving the late entry fee.

In other other news, it looks like Sunday at Glenvale will be in b-grade. I forgot that their handicappers are damn strict and I've never won there. Might see if I can change that... but that depends on how much I destroy myself on Saturday.

D: 62.3km
