6am NRR:
I thought my legs were done this morning, but in hind sight it might have just been a serious case of CBFs.

I rolled to the front at the start of the ride, pulled one turn, before slinking back a bit to feel sorry for myself. At some point I was next to Jez Hunt, lamenting how my favourite hill wasn't so fun when he's around because he smacks me on it. Later, as we approached that hill I noted Jez had had to push more air than normal, so set about chasing down and passing him with extreme prejudice. Granted I blew a short while before the top, but I'd made my point, and in the process found that my legs worked better than I thought.

With this fresh revelation, I decided play in the sprint, wavering from setting myself to perform a lead out, or sprinting in earnest. The heavy headwind was going to make being on the front tough, and honestly I was letting it come down to who's wheel I was on where, because such things are so varied on a training ride that it's hard to predict.Anyway, lights at Glen Huntly spoilt the fun, so that put paid to the whole shebang.
