6am NRR:
I feared today would find my legs lacking, instead I found myself sitting in E1 for most of the ride, despite the average speed end to end being up. I'm fairly chuffed about that idea, though it's possible it indicates I am pushing myself too hard (HR failing to rise), but given I hit what I think are normal HR numbers later in the ride, I'm thinking it's a sign I'm in ok form.

Granted I was sitting in the bunch, not fighting for position which meant somewhere towards the back, just trying to get a sneaky 50km in before work.

I moved up the bunch as we rounded Brighton beach (the time my HR jumped over threshold, as mentioned before), and through the golden mile Lochy let me know he was on me wheel and keen to sprint. Sadly the lights at the canal spoilt our fun, staying very much red despite my 54km/h urging for them to change.
