Day 3 : Stage 2 (Post Ride)

I am now convinced of the power of alcohol for endurance athletes. My legs felt better than they have in months today. 34 miles in just over 1 hr 45 mins. Flat and relatively fast today I rode the first hour easy as I was unsure of how I was going to feel then rode more tempo for the last 10 miles. I felt so good that I even took on the finishing sprint today. I hit 1050 watts in an effortless effort to the line - felt amazing - I am sure I'd have gone faster if the lady on rollerblades hadn't been in the way! Watch out Robbie Mcewan!!

I absolutely agree with the alcohol! Some of my best rides have started off hung over, and ended with some butt-kicking riding.
