    Oh my, I don't know whether to cry, puke or just keel over and lie down.

    Watopia figure 8 race, so a bit hilly for me.
    Went off in reverse which surprised me and I hung where I wanted up the first hill and through the rollers, over the bridge sprint I held my position and yes, we got to the climb and blam, out the back. But picked up 3 new buddies at the top and down the far sIde we collected 3 more, it's then flat for a fair bit so we held together and hit the last hill, again, a bit long and steep so I mostly got dumped out of the group, but with 1 guy with me and 2 from behind we had a small group, which grew as we picked up 2 more who were not as fast as one of our lads.
    Down through the water tube bit and we're catching 2 more, on the kick out we catch them at 800m to go. I held off on the sprint, 300, 280m go go! I did my best but 280m lasted a lifetime! Battled to the line with a C who beat me by 2m. According to Zwift we're same time but he had me by a fraction.

    Great race, hard finish, I honestly really very nearly three up after it. I've been struggling with a reflux issue lately and this nearly blew me out of the water!

    I had a go at a Zwift race last night. It was a Hare and Hounds race which is made up of 4 categories, A to D, each with different weight per kg limits and each set off at different times, the aim being to get to the finish at roughly the same time. I stuck myself in the B class as I'm right on the cusp of A and B and after about 3 minutes warm-up, A was going to be a big ask from pretty much cold.

    It was a 4 lap race with a few lumps and bumps in, a kind of rouleurs type terrain. 1st lap was pretty tough getting up to speed and used to the effort but after that it wasn't too bad. There were a few pushes on the up-slopes to whittle the group down and keep the pace up but managed to stay in. Laps 2 and 3 went past without too much drama, and then the final lap came round. There was a bit more of an effort from the group to split it and I did a bit more on the final lap to help things along, probably shouldn't of in hindsight as when it got to the sprint, I didn't have a lot left but did what I could. I should have tried to ride off the front of the group from further out rather than try for a sprint but hey ho, it was what it was. Of the 21 or so B's I came in 6th and only 0.7/0.8 or so behind the winner. It was a tough effort, 301w avg/309w NP for the 50 minute duration.

    Good work. !!!

    Hit a wall about 8km from the end. First laps, cruising, then laps 4-5-6 were going OK, the little kick to the line i had to push on to get up with the lightweights, then end of lap 6 into lap 7 i just had nothing at the top of the hill. I was then dead and cooked.

    I’ve been having some issues lately with an eating problem, so my reserves are limited, the good news is, my weight has dropped from 15st 3 to 14st 11 in a week LOL.
