The race itself started earlier this year and we got away around 8am somewhere. Right from the start we head uphill. Great way to wake those legs up. hehehehehe. I got to the halfway turn poing in just under and hour. The route was undulating. Definitely not flat and fast.
Today was spent trying to get past the 'I'm out for a Sunday ride with my BFF' while they're casually riding abreast (taking up most of the road to do this) and catching up on whatever. This is done with no consideration for cyclists or even motor vehicles coming up behind them. Idiots!! The fact of the matter is at the 94.7 there are going to be zillions of these types. I hope I survive!!
The GOOD news is that I did improved on my time from last year. Woohooooo!!
My official time was 02:09:05 - I was the 204th cyclist in for the 40km out of 224 (not including those who did not finish).
Last year (2009). My official time was 02:31:02 - I came 3rd last. Ouch!!
I was not chased by the ambulance and sweeper vehicle and there was no bursting into tears. When hubby asked if my song had played this time - strangley enough, even though it is on my MP3 - Invincible did not come into play today.
|Seriousley, this needs to go!!|
|Very happy with myself!!|
|Gotta love helmet hair :-)|
Hope everyone had a super weekend.
Before I go. In the past 6 weeks I have lost 5.1 kg's - EXTREMELY happy right now.
