Savings and Loans Coast to Coast

Sunday, I'll be doing 100km or so in the Savings and Loans Coast to Coast 2009.

I opted for the cowardly start, but am probably fit enough to do the whole distance if I so choose.

Just tonight, I was happy to be able to ride for at least 5km holding my heart rate above 180 without discomfort; and still having energy left during the rest of the 50.

I felt bad having gone on a binge of eating, boozing and smoking on Sunday during the Norwood Food and Wine festival; and I certainly felt like rubbish for smoking tonight.

Let's see how I get on Sunday with the rest of the riders. I still can't keep fully up with the pack over just 50km, which is annoying, but I'm sure if I pace myself, I'll be just fine.

in the last two months.

Some of that is new bike, some of that is losing several kg, but most of that feels like fitness.
