... but I did beat my (modest) goal for last Sunday's 20K TT on Fiesta Island in San Diego. Told myself that I needed to go under 30 min for this flat 20K TT and I did -- official time 29:52. They listed my average speed at 24.97 MPH.
Since I always set TT goals that I never seem to be able to achieve, I was happy that I achieved this one. Ended up 9th out of 22 Masters 50-59. What was even better was that I was within a minute of a couple of guys who usually beat me by more than 2 minutes in 20K TTs. In fact 6th to 9th were separated by less than 50 seconds.
This was also a small consolation for me as I had set a goal of going under 1 hour for 40K before I turned 50. I did two 40K TTs this year and didn't make it.
The only bad thing is that this was my first time doing a TT on this course so now I have a fast (for me) benchmark for this course.
So now I get to do a hilly 11 mile TT tomorrow.
