St Kilda East - Mt Pleasant - Nathans - St Kilda East:
Nathan Rd is a monster. The Strava segment for it is even called "Nathan's Rd Monster". On a good day it's 40 odd seconds of 1,000W, but today wasn't a good day, gravity was especially strong and my arms especially weak in their attempts to provide leverage to my legs.

It seems simple in hindsight, obvious even... but the best way to get to Nathan Rd, is to turn left at Nathan Rd. We however went straight, meaning there was no momentum to carry in, instead we came at it from the side and carried precisely zero momentum. Ahead of us was a wall that seemed to curl to an over vert steepness at the top.

Bad words were said. Mail was delivered.
