Mountain bike (commute) 58:35 intensity: (48:35 @2) + (10:00 @5) 27.51 km (28.2 kph)
slept:7.8 shoes: Giant Anthem

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.
1 PM

Core stability (core strength) 27:25 [2]
shoes: Fletch's Tevas

Finally made an excuse to go and do a session rather than making an excuse not to do one.
4 PM

Mountain bike 58:27 intensity: (51:27 @2) + (7:00 @5) 22.9 km (23.5 kph)
shoes: Giant Anthem

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.

1:18
1:21
1:23
1:22

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.

Mountain bike intervals 1:21:19 intensity: (28:11 @1) + (10:07 @2) + (43:01 @5) 38.86 km (28.7 kph)
shoes: Giant Anthem

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.

8:26 (35.6kph)
8:33 (35.1kph)
8:26 (35.6kph)
8:36 (34.9kph)
9:02 (33.2kph)

Bit surprised with the last one because I thought I tore it up in the top gear but maybe I was fatigued and it just seemed I was working harder.
