Cycled into the city to meet Crossy Lad and originally planned for an easy session but after telling him I wanted a few efforts thrown in it certainly didn't turn out that way.
Very cold and windy and after a 3k warm up and once out of the city Crossy called for a 3k tempo set that saw us running straight into a head wind. Managed to keep within about 25m behind and was content with a 11.54 averaging 3.54s.
A 1k recovery picking up HuRTS boy Liam along the way before the 2nd rep of a 2k was up. Tough start having to come up some stairs then the climb up over the bridge that kept it more than honest although managed to recover a little on the downside as I was running a tad over 4 min/ks in 8.06
Another 1k easy recovery before the 3rd and final effort of 1k was covered around Jones Bay Wharf ending beside the Star Casino done in 3.49
Back to the starting point just as 12ks ticked over in 51.04 in an healthy average of 4.15s
3k effort 11.44 ave 3.54
2k effort 8.06 ave 4.03
1k effort 3.49
Crossy had all the official stats on his fancy watch, that made me realize its maybe time I invested in a new one as I'm told mine might be out-dated with old software.
Bike session in the park tomorrow morning, heard the NOTB are sending another challenger in Tommy H, lets hope he goes better then Macca did last week.
