Anything ending with cake must be good!

So yesterday I competed my first time trial of the season. A very wet and a little windy time trial but complete nether the less. It was a tough day for everyone with a fair amount of rain and a head wind that never materialized into a tail wind. Well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

After finishing and having absolutely nothing left in my legs and cross the finish line it was a slow cycle back to HQ for some coffee and cake. During the cycle back my mind was split in two. why the hell did I ever get out of bed on such a horrible day to do something so hard and silly. The other, why have I not been getting out of bed earlier in my life to on such horrible days to do something hard and silly.

After getting back to HQ and getting some caffeine in me I was left with only one thought, excluding those about how sore my legs were, when is the next time trial as I've got a lot of work to do!

The main reason for doing the time trial in the first place was to get some power race data for my coach so that she can plan my training for the forthcoming sessions. Doing a 25M time trial is similar to doing a test in my previous post Run Test.

So goals of the next time trial is to make the red and yellow lines on the graph above a little bit higher. Better get training!
