Well, another day, another thirty miles. Still not climbing all that well, but I'm certainly getting back my speed on the flats - I was running about 17-20 most of the time, which made up nicely for...

Another Thursday, another loop around the dairy farm at Hague. Averaged 15.8 over 24 miles, and I'm not screaming in agony at the end. I think I'm actually managing to get back into decent shape. ...
