Its now spring and we have been having some great weather. Its been ages since I took my time trial bike out for a ride, so with some races coming up, I needed to get out on the road and put some kilometers on my wheels. I have been working with the book, "The Time Crunched Cyclist" where I have been doing a lot more riding at higher intensities, but doing less. Each week I get out on my bike(Mountain bike or Time Trial bike) and I feel like I am getting faster with each training session. One problem though, it has been a long time since I have used my Time Trial bike and feel like I am really slow compared to where I used to be back home in Melbourne. I am hoping this is just a matter of perspective where I am not properly comparing "apples with apples". As well I need to remember Auckland roads are really rough, causing a lot of rolling resistance when riding. I am not longer group riding either, so I don't have the luxury of sitting at the back of a pack when things get a little windy or rough. I have races coming up in November an December, so it will be awesome to have a clear view of where I am and knowing I will still have about three months before my "A" race of the season, IronMan New Zealand. If you would like to see more of my stats for this ride, I am on Strava at the following link: https://www.strava.com/activities/1888637567
