Wednesday 12th August

This morning I decided to push it and see how quick I could go if I really tried. This probably wasn't really the best idea as on the way home I had to cycle further - 14 miles to my car dealership instead of the 12 miles home.

I was pretty pleased with the result though - an average of 14.8 MPH and a ride time of 20:29.9. I want to get under the 20 minute mark but for that I'll have to average 15 MPH or over. I was averaging 15 MPH this morning until the steps up to Canary Wharf.

On the way back as I said I had to go to the car dealership. I was picking my car up from a service and Linzi was getting her new car so a very full evening. I started out quite quickly but started to feel tired at around the 10 mile mark. There is one really really long hill that gradually gets steeper between Brixton and Streatham and it really takes it out of you. After that I took it a bit easy. I'm still pleased with the result though - took just over an hour for the whole run.
