Got a lift in with Bolto this morning but with the tiredness of this week and a minor twinge in my right calf muscle that first showed itself on Tuesday, I was never going to do any work.

Smallish group to start on the most humid day ever. The Broad Construction group caught us early on, which was unusual because they were originally in front of us, so it was a pretty pacey ride from there. I never bothered to go to the front today because I just wasn't feeling it and my lack of usual toilet stop before the start manifested itself early on.

We joined up with one or two other groups shortly before the Raffles and somehow lost half of our own group, with Cautiousboi and I almost losing whatever group we were now following due to getting stuck midway between several groups. I tried to catch back on with Speedboi zooming past and doing a good job of it but just as I got to the back they upped the pace and I fell off again, not to rejoin until Mt Henry.

Broad group flew down the freeway path so Cruiseboi and I dropping off to a more respectable pace in an attempt to find our group again. A few others did likewise and we joined them for the recovery section before the cruise turned into a plod when we got stuck behind a group of girls. At Juffy's Super Tuesday intersection the girls as a collective almost managed to fall of their bikes whilst taking the corner at a phenomenally slow pace so it was good to get past them.

About the only thing I achieved today was to lose the UWA sprint, not to Sprintboi (who pulled up at the sign), but to another guy with a backpack. Almost drowned in my own shirt afterwards.

Mmm, nice putting on a still soaked shirt for the ride home and it didn't even rain this morning! It did start raining just as I left work though so that was nice. I really have to do something about this dip in the front tyre. It's quite depressing and getting me down. I felt deflated and flat and couldn't bump up the pace but there's no dimple solution.
