The ride was probably my worst yet, losing 1min 51sec on my previous time and coming in last once again.
I knew things where not going well when I forget to set my Garmin timer, then for some reason it was not showing any cadence though it was working OK in my warm up. So wasted time messing with this switching it off and on again and eventually it came on on its own. Then the wind was also effecting me.
So now with no clue as to my time I eventually get into a rhythm but a lot where coming past me too early on so I new I was behind. Though I pushed hard during the second half of the lap I think the damage was already done. Felt pretty rubbish and did not really get over it until Wednesday afternoon, this may seem stupid but could not even get the spirit to go on the Wednesday ride!
So my goal for the rest of the season ( to keep sane) is not to try and better my time anymore but just try and maintain a time under 32 minutes and with luck I may get another sub 30min if weather conditions happen to be perfect. I am planning some solo training rides (on road bike) with hill climbs and fast intervals with slower recovery periods .
Then if I ever do get stronger legs maybe my times will come down naturally?
