Another busy day today while we all settle into the day to day rythm of
This morning was an early ride as we had other things on all afternoon. All
the team split up into different abilities. I chose to try and head out
with a local group. We met at 7am in North Perth and headed out. There were
2 groups and I joined the fast group of about 25 bikes. All was going well
for the first 20km or so on the flat but the next 5km in the hills killed
me. I worked hard and kept the group in sight but ran out of gas as we hit
more flat terrain and was unable to get back onto the group. I was stranded
on my own in Fremantle. I tried to find a flat way back to town and also
decided to go and Visit an old friend Liam. I called him and managed to
navigate my way to his place where he very generously loaned me a wireless
modem to get online at the hotel while I am in Perth. Thanks Liam and
thanks to the phone company he works for ACN.
I wound up getting home with about 80km on the clock and just in time for
our drugs in sport briefing. I am one of the presenters on the video so as
you would expect there were some very complimentary words about how good I
looked with make up on.
I also caught up with the APC medical, nutrition and recovery staff. Our
team physio also had a bit of a play with my knee.
Tomorrow is our first track session here in perth, I am pretty excited
about it as I have been feeling good on the road and it will be interesting
how things feel on the track.
