Road Bike 53:00 [3] 25.0 km (28.3 kph)
shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Bailed on club training this morning cause it was raining again. Planned to go out bout 9am but got called into work. Spent the day building the locker rooms and showers for the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium. Had further trouble when I got home trying to get some maps printed for tomorrow but eventually got out at 7pm. Half riverloop with Graceville extension. Did 4X Duttonberg reps. Got held up on the last one by a car......

Road Bike 1:15:00 [3] 35.0 km (28.0 kph)
shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Morning riverloop with the Firmantor, Stu and the Cat. Turned into something between a tempo ride/interval session with pace getting quick after 10mins and lots of attacking. Couldnt hold onto an attack by the Firminator and got dropped and was in the hurt box for a while. Caught back up and hit the rest hard with the Firminator till the Duttonberg before rolling the rest with the other guys.

Road Bike race 1:56:00 [3] 60.0 km (31.0 kph)
shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Crit race at Muzz plus ride to and from. First ever bike race, tried to bullshit my way into C grade by saying I've raced B grade at Nundah but the Italian handicapper said B grade was stronger here. He also made the Cat race C grade. Handled the race alright, did a few turns on the front. Thought 2 guys were trying to breakaway so jumped on the front and tried to get them to join me but they just sat on my tail and dragged the bunch back up Unfortunately I was boxed in when the Cat put in an attack so couldnt go with him. Last 3 laps were hectic, people started going way off their lines on the corners, plus on the final corner someone clipped a pedal on the road then about 5 guys went flying off the track. Luckily stayed out of trouble. Good fun.

Road Bike 1:28:00 [3] 36.0 km (24.5 kph) +500m
shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Two Coot-tha laps. Legs felt tired at the start of the ride and worse on both laps which showed in the climb times (11.15, 11.23). Close to my slowest ever times up coot-tha.

Morning roll with Firminator. Out to Mt Ommaney then back via a half riverloop. Threw in a few hill sprints on the way back from Mt Ommaney and actually managed to drop the Firminator on one.

Road Bike 1:30:00 [3] 40.0 km (26.7 kph)
shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Was meant to be racing B grade at Nundah this morning but it was pouring rain so slept in a bit longer. Still got out there in time to enter but decided to bail and glad I did cause it ended up being a shit fight with A grade catching them and the marshalls losing track of where the B grade leader was.

Orienteering (QLD Sprint Champs) 22:13 [3] 3.4 km (6:32 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212

Decided to race QLD sprint champs to see how the hip was going. Still feels the same just not as bad. Race went pretty well surprisingly. Probably best I've felt endurance wise in an urban sprint, assume thats from cycling recently. Technically bit scrappy in the technical section in the buildings but still reasonably clean, only one minor error on the 2nd last one. Finished 2nd within a minute of Clive who was always going to be hard to beat. Good fun racing in the pouring rain too.

Road Bike 1:12:00 [3] 35.0 km (29.2 kph)
shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Cruised round the riverloop on the beamer. Gears need a bit of tweaking but bike is running well again. Achilles had the occasional tweak but felt ok...

Thursday Mar 17, 2011 #


Achilles flared up pretty bad after training on the cyclocross last week with the MTB shoes and saturdays ride made it worse. Bike parts finally arrived so beamer is back in action and achilles feeling better so will hopefully get out for a session tomorrow morning.

Road Bike 3:00:00 [3] 75.0 km (25.0 kph)
shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Had planned a Brookfield loop with the Cat and Stu, but Stu was a bit off colour this morning so cruised round a riverloop, then hit up 16th on Park for Breakfast. Continued on after that down to Mt Gravatt with the Cat. Did a seated rep up there (2km 150m climb?, ~6.45mins). Smashed it back on Logan rd at 40km/h, good fun.

Thursday Mar 10, 2011 #

Cyclocross 50:00 [3] 24.0 km (2:05 / km)

Half riverloop with graceville extension with the Cat. Threw in 2x 10min efforts. Cyclocross race on Saturday has been cancelled due to lack of entries which is a buggar. Hopefully my CRC order arrives tomorrow so I can get back on the beamer. Get hip scan results back next tuesday.

Cyclocross 1:10:00 [3] 35.0 km (2:00 / km)

Riverloop of Power on the Cyclocross. Hardwork from Chelmer to Yeronga in a headwind with treadly tyres. Duttonberg and L'Gate climbs also hurt on that bike as well. Was intending just an hour of power but got every light through southbank and held up by supercommuters on the bikeway so pushed past the hour to make up for the time loss.

Arvo extended riverloop with the Cat. On the cyclocross getting the legs ready for next weekends race. Did 5X 5min on/off mostly drafting off the Cats wheel as I had a rolling disadvantage. Good session

Road Bike 2:30:00 [3] 68.0 km (27.2 kph) +1000m
shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Early morning Brookfield ride with Chris Firminator. Thought I would be able to keep up on the hills today cause he had a hard session yesterday and the weight of his 1980 europa bike would slow him down. Instead the buggar rocked up on a brand new Trek Cronus and I subsequently got smashed again. Threw in a rep up Hell Haven Rd, plus returned via Bielby rd to avoid traffic. Hip injury surfaced again, been good on the bike recently so didnt tack on a half riverloop. Bike is sounding a bit sick, probably cause i've done about 3000 miles on the one chain, plus bottom bracket needs replacing.
