So yay 2 posts in one day!
Monday was pretty much a write off, i don't know if it was the stress of my defeat at the hands of the kittens or something more sinister (is there anything more sinister than being defeated by kittens?) but i simply didn't have the energy required to do much of anything at all. After doing basically nothing, i ended up falling asleep around 3 in the afternoon, and not waking up for 14.5 hours.
The loop went ok, not great, but ok. Nearly 2 minutes faster than the previous KOM (and only other person to have ridden it) for an average of 35.2kmh. Once my legs come back to me and i pop on the aerobars, i think 40kmh should be a reasonable goal.
Sadly i now have to leave the house, so Part 2 of today/tomorrow will have to wait until tonight. No guarantees on whether my philosophical interpretation of tonight matches anyone else's.
