6am NRR:
Rolling out from home at 5:47am I hoped that my doctors appointment later would leave me with bugger all or no dressings, and that I could start training seriously and showering properly this week. More on that in a bit.

As for the ride I was heading to do, I am in a bit of a re-discovery phase. You know, working out what my legs can and can't do, where my threshold is and what it feels like. For the record, my threshold feels hurty, so I only gave it a few nudges. Some turns on the way down, and on the way back by covering a gap, smacking Rickets and setting up the sprint.

The nice nurses at my local GP took all my dressings off, exclaimed at how nice my arse looked and sent me home with only a few swabs of magic stuff that gets rid of the adhesive remains.

On the down side, I am left with a few hairy squares on my legs where the dressings used to be. Even in a world of cycling where leg shaving and hairy shorts are normal... I don't think they qualify as cool.
