Thursday I managed 20.3mph with 3 traffic light stops at 3am! Good going but I was really going hard and it takes it out of you for the rest of the day.
Trip home was a more sedate affair but 17.2mph wasn't bad.
Friday morning I felt terrible, I think 2 hrs sleep solved that riddle and I rode an 18.6mph average into work. The journey home I took a little diversion and rode 13 miles as hard as I could and as its 'all uphill' it was a killer.
Average was 20.3mph.
Ascent was over 800ft.
I'd say that was good going but the knee was aching and my backside too from all the bouncing with the seat post a little too high.
Saturday's early morning commute was as difficult as Friday's but I went to bed 6pm the night before and managed a good 8hrs but my legs were still aching from last Sunday and Tuesday. Completed the trip with average of 19mph.
The return leg was going to be a longer TT as fast as possible. Wasn't sure of the route until I set off so I eventually chose the road to Bury, towards Ramsbottom, up some long climb Holcombe? then through Haslingdon and Edenfield and back home.
Average Speed 18.8mph
Distance 40 miles
I hadn't done most of this route before so made a nice change. I can't believe the average either as there were some big climbs especially on the road to Holcombe where I over took a roadie but I did go as hard as I could with a little in reserve just in case. Excess energy was depleted on the final sprint home.
