St Kilda East - Mt Pleasant - Nathans - St Kilda East:
Fartlek, not just a word that makes me giggle, but also a rather apt descriptor of this morning's adventure.

I thought I'd try out riding with DK, it's been a while, and he promised me he was fat and slow. What I didn't realise is that he has a desire to rectify that situation through the judicial use of pain. Any and every hill we came to was done with intent, and that included the little lump on Church st between Bridge and Swan.

The data tells me I was producing decent power, but I struggled to make it smoothly, each pedal stroke a fight rather than fluid. It was only on the 30% pitches of Nathans rd that I felt even mildly competitive, but really that was only because I had a 28t to Dave's 25.
