Today I woke up at 5:30 am to go to the Stowmarket & District CC 10 mile Time Trial.
When we got there it was a bit cold (10 degrees), but when I started racing at 07:38 it got a bit warmer at 12 degrees.
The start had moved from where dad remembered it, as there was a new road layout, but I warmed up with my friend Laura Davies as I was one number after her and we found the start. At the start we were allowed to be held up, which wasn’t possible during the previous lock down, so I got a faster start than before.
The course was quite nice and quite fast, but it had some big pot holes I couldn’t see easily. I went into quite a few of them, which wasn’t great, but I didn’t lose too much time.
My previous PB was 26minutes and 48 Seconds, today I have for 10 miles a new PB of 26 minutes and 27 Seconds, My season target time is 25:59, so I’m getting closer.
The ladies at time trials are very nice and supportive, thanks Sue and Laura.
