Take the other day for example, up at 6am for work at the pool shop, knock off late which meant less than an hour nap before heading to the servo. Bearing that in mind, i think i can be excused for almost charging a customer a 948.5 BILLION dollar credit card fee. I don't even know how i managed that, but luckily i caught it in time or it would have made balancing the till rather challenging.
In due course i knocked off there and limped home, but with the steam train race looming on the horizon (i know i forgot to go into detail on that the other day, i'll get there eventually) i needed to squeeze some training in.
Onto the Tarini, and in spite of the lack of sleep and the bone dry chain making my ears bleed, we ticked along pretty well on the flat at least (the climbs don't really bear mentioning). Sticking to the "listening to my body" thing, i decided to make it a "30/30", 30 minutes out with the tailwind and then try to get under 30 minutes on the way back into the headwind.
That was helped in no small part by chasing a truck out of Peregian, i'd have had him for sure if it wasn't for the pissy little 52-12 top on the Tarini, by 57kmh i was spinning far too fast for my liking. Aside from that it was uneventful and i managed to get back with 30 seconds up my sleeve.
Then it was onto some general house duties before heading up to Noosa for another antenatal class. On the plus side, this time we were able to dispense with all the ice breaking introduction bullshit but a good 90% of what comes out of that midwife's mouth annoys the hell out of me. Just give me the brevet card and let's get on with it!
Anyway with that out of the way it was 39 hours on the go, so i was pretty well buggered.
Only a short spin on the trainer today, but should be a little more tomorrow, and maybe even a post about that steam train race.
