I really enjoyed getting out on my bike, often morning and night. Now it is getting dark by 6 pm and making the daily cycle more of a challenge.
Not really being able to run has given me a reason to take the cycling more seriously and I have had many races over the summer. I'm finding I'm getting stronger and faster on the hills and on the flat. Yesterday I rode in the Wellington Road Championships over 75 hilly km's [48 miles] and finished 3rd in my age group. On the flatter parts of the course we reached speeds of over 50 kph [32 mph]. It is exciting to have new challenges and encouraging to see the improvement I'm making under my coach, Bob. He says that in another year I should be extremely competitive at the rate I'm going in my training and racing.
Thought I'd leave you with some photos from the summer days at the beach. It was lovely soaking up the warm rays and cooling off in the refreshing surf.
