Though my new tyres turned up just now … so looks like I am running out of excuses to not ride on Sunday now. Mate is back from work stuff and available as well. Only a short one though, as we’re both in crap shape! But weather is looking decent.

I think he’s just a fan of Simon.

Simon seems to be a fan of Pietro Mennea.

It’s all quite confusing.

A bit of a spicy start, 10.5 mins from waking up! But soon got into it.

Felt decent plus my ftp on the roadie is obvs higher so I dialled it up a few % each rep for the back 5. Also went up each min on the final rep. Felt right other than my arse not being saddle ready for that saddle yet! :joy: :joy:

Pleasing graph though…

Been out for a morning swim & have the rest of the day for a ride.

Unfortunately I’m still traumatised from my 2nd cycle at The ROC & have no appetite for it.

My wife has limited sympathy.

Rode round the corner, find a nice spot. Stash a book in your jersey. Sit somewhere scenic in peace for a few hours. Ride home.

Job done.

Early, parky dip in The Dee this morning. Strong flow meant 3:00/100m pace upstream & 1:25/100m on the return.

Only 1100mtrs done, shall stick to non-flowing waters until things warm up a bit.

Back of a fag packet, think it would be reasonable to log that as 1237.5m

disclaimer: may be wrong

Edit: yep wrong, refined answer maybe its 1262m assuming you swam at constant speed relative to the moving water :man_shrugging:

Summary

speed upstream 0.556 m/s covering 550m in 989s
speed downstream 1.176 m/s covering 550m in 468s
swam for 1457s in total
average speed relative to the flowing water = (0.556+1.176)/2 = 0.866 m/s
1457s x 0.866 m/s = 1262m

Sounds highly unpleasant :cold_face:

100k :biking_man:. 1600m :mountain_snow: this time of year they take the cows up into the mountains for the fresh grass. Got caught twice by a herd of them walking up being beaten by men in sticks whilst wearing big bells around their necks
