Commute:

D: 5.2km

HCC Crit:
It's never a good sign when after finding out it's your first week back racing, that people giggle. Right up until that point I was in a calm and stable mental place, I knew it was going to hurt, but it was what I had to do. Post giggles, I was nervous. Had I underestimated how much pain I'd be going through?

In the end though, I did about what I expected. I hurt, I made it to the end of the race, I did a tiny bit of work.

The power data suggests the demands were on par with racing last year, with heart rate matching some of the harder races. This means I am down a little bit aerobically, which is about where I thought I was. The upside is, if I can get that extra aerobic ability back, I will be able to mix it in the race more, rather than a half hearted break, and a final lap effort to try and bring back the break for Adrian Jackson.
