Hurtin'

30 Sep 2007 at 13:01

Legs never woke up today, pain for the entire 33 mile ride, proper aching pain, not much fun.

Stuggling though the thick thick air, it wasn't a great deal of fun.

I had to do most of the ride with watery eyes as my glasses snapped in two and fell off my face as I was clattering the KHS though some rocks. Maybe it's time to get those Oakleys I put off from getting at the start of the year.

Apart from that, bugger all happened on the ride, overtook a million slow people, dodged lots of stupid dogs who seem to think that the best place to move if there's an object coming at them is TOWARDS the object. I no longer brake for dogs.

Ah, I didn't go over that side at all today. Was back home before 11am.
