Late in the afternoon, I was again rushed to get to the RunFar Time Trials, as I'd taken an hour out in the morning, and I have some hot topics at work, I didn't leave the house until 5.50pm, again rushed, I hadn't even taken my bike out of the car since Saturdays 70.3 ride. I arrived, did a short loop for warm-up with Tune and then set off.
Conditions were pretty ideal, some headwind on the way out but not too much. I was doing the TT blind, no technology, so I had no idea how fast I was going on what my time was. I was surprised when Tune came riding by me after about 3-miles, on the uphill section I struggled to catch her. At the turnaround we were about 100m apart and as soon as I got into the big chain ring and started getting the cadence up I made headway and passed, that was it though, the guy that had started before me was gone. I kept up a decent speed and pushed hard to the end.
My time was 21:44:45, 22.1MPH, 4th in AG, 39th Overall. A new PR, over my old time of 22:08:10, 21.7MPH

Did a "warm-down" lap, which meant I took it easy on the way out, and then lost it and spent the way back passing three guys with pointy cycling helmets... yeah, they were probably warming down too.
