I am guilty of dawdling a little on my way home tonight, for in my bag was a piece of paper outlining the world of pain I was (voluntarily) pedalling towards.

D: 17.3km
A: 45m

1 x 5min E1
2 x 6s HCLR
1 x 7s PG+12 from 0rpm (left leg)
1 x 7s PG+12 from 0rpm (right leg)
1 x 18s PG from 120rpm (seated)
1 x 24s PG-4 from 110rpm (seated)
1 x 30s 34s PG-6 from 80rpm (seated)
1 x 34s 44s PG-6 from 80rpm (seated)

Writing this it all becomes obvious where I went wrong, but at the time I just did what I thought I was told. I now believe in my interval induced delirium I read the starting time of the last two intervals (minutes) as the duration of the intervals (seconds).

So there I was, 34 seconds into a 44 second interval when the lights went completely out in my legs. If I had had half a brain cell working on something other than "PEDAL YOU FAT WHORE", I would have realised that was the time to stop, instead I had 10 very long seconds. I went from somewhere around 140rpm down to 110rpm.

For what happened after I fell off the bike, refer to last week.
