Another cold, 'couldn't be bothered' ride in until I found the B train at Bayswater so decided to give it a whirl. Felt terrible and decided if I hadn't at least matched it to Caledonian that I'd give up the chase. Unfortunately I got there with the train so continued on. The train smashed me to East Perth but then began premature celebrations at Claisebrook where I snuck in front and didn't see it again.
Finally made an excuse to go and do a session rather than making an excuse not to do one.

My boss let me off early today so I took the opportunity to head over to Roe Hwy in the daylight. On the way I did five reps of Mount St just for fun, descending gears until the fifth where I went back to the first, just to see if it made any difference. As luck would have it I encountered cars at the top on all five reps so it was a bit of a mismatch finish point.
Of course now the two detours on the freeway south path has turned into three detours, with the South St crossing requiring a wait on three sets of lights so I was there a good five or six minutes. Almost threw myself into traffic just to get the wait over and done with.

Intervals on the Roe Hwy path, 5km/2km x 5. Decided on something a bit different and did the hard reps towards home and U-turned for the recovery reps away from home. Almost worked out nicely except I overshot the finish turn by about 300m on the final rep.
