Other than a bit of down time (riding every second day) working and getting back into training properly again, a heap of not much exciting has been going on in my world since my last post. Well up until today that is, Michelle and I raced in the 6hr section of the Moon ride 6,12 and 24hr teams mtb race in Rotorua. I started the race and after the third 19ish minute lap I lead the 6 and 12hr race out rite. The plan was for me to do the first 3hr and then hand over to Michelle to do the next 2-2.5 hr giving me 1 or 2 laps to finish the race. This worked pritty well apart from me crashing while passing a slower rider with a lap and a half to go on my 3hr stint and slowing a bit before handing over. Michelles laps were all pritty close to each other but by the time she finished and I went out I could only get one lap in as I new I couldnt pull a 17min lap before the cut off.
All in all it was a good day with michelle doing 6 laps and me doing 10 laps. My Average hart rate was 180 for 3hr23min and my Average speed was 26.7kph. Im happy with those numbers at this stage of the game as world champs are still a while away yet.
