    Thank you @thornape ! I'm feeling much better today after getting a lot of rest and water. I will stretch out and maybe by tonight I will be good to go but if not then I'll just take a walk or short run and it won't be a problem!

    Last June is going to be hard to beat. Last June, we spent 3 weeks in summertime in Canada cycling and hiking etc. etc. This June, we'll be in the depths of winter here in Tasmania.

    However, I will make an attempt to get somewhere close to last June in terms of time or distance ... or both if I can manage it. :)

    June 2 - 45 min cycling indoors on my trainer

    There's a major storm coming. They've been advertising it for days now ... supposed to roll in this evening. So we set off relatively early (11 am) in order to get this ride in before the storm arrived, and yet late enough so that the frost would have melted off the roads.

    It was about 10C where we live when we set off, and climbed up the Southern Outlet. That's about a 12 km climb and by the time we got to the top, we were both overheating because we had dressed for cold. I figured I'd be shedding clothes as soon as we got to the bottom of the descent.

    But when we got to the bottom of the descent, it was indeed cold ... it had dropped to 8C and then down to 7C while we were riding. That was combined with a little breeze and heavy mist all the way out making it feel quite chilly. I was wishing for winter cycling boots! My toe covers weren't quite up to the job.

    We turned around and fortunately the mist/drizzle stopped, and what little wind there was dropped off to practically nothing.

    We had thought about stopping for lunch, but opted to just keep riding back home instead. A hot shower and coffee were calling! So we kept cycling back to Hobart and then up and over Bonnet Hill.

    Our elevation profile shows one big climb at the beginning, then almost flat, and then another big climb at the end. Variety!

    Happily, we did the ride within randonneuring time. Mission accomplished!

    There were a number of cyclists out there today ... all bundled up and looking rather cold. So we weren't the only ones.

    Weekend adventures ...

    June 4 - 77.7 km cycling (260 min)

    June 5 - 2.8 km (20 min) running on treadmill!! Go me!! I usually reserve running for chasing buses and things like that!! :grin:
    3.6 km (40 min) walking on treadmill.
    1.5 km (10 min) rowing

    I'm back!! I was madly studying for a final exam worth 50% of my mark. Thankfully, that is done now! There will be a long wait to find out how I did, but at least the course is finished and I've got a month till the next one starts. With only full-time work to do (instead of full-time work + a grad course), I am hoping to get more cycling in. :)

    6/16 - 27 miles - decided to take a chance and bike to open swim club. Apparently everyone just leaves their stuff together on the beach and so far it's been safe. Managed to swim across the lake and back without a panic attack. Very glad that I have this resource available - if I'd just been pool swimming before the tri it would have been awful. Struggled on the way across, but got into a rhythm on the way back that I like. 4 strokes freestyle and breathe (like I do in the pool). Repeat 4 times. Then a breast stroke to get a mini rest and make sure I'm going in the right direction. Going to do this at least twice a week, maybe 3 days a week over the next two months. Was tired but super pumped on the bike ride home, but that was all shattered by an @sshole at a 4 way stop who decided he could go ahead of me, causing me to have to swerve and fall over. Now something's rubbing on my front wheel but I'm too tired to figure out what. Bah!

    I'm in again. It's the rainy season here and I don't ride in monsoon rains so I'll reduce my goal to 500 km, though I hope to get significantly more if the weather allows.

    1st Jun: 41.72 km
    3rd Jun: 55.50 km
    4th/5th Jun: 10 km
    6th Jun: 41.21 km
    7th Jun: 41.94 km
    8th Jun: 46.19 km
    9th Jun: 41.24 km
    11th Jun: 46.61 km
    12-13 Jun: 10 km
    14th Jun: 45.10 km
    15th Jun: 12 km
    16th Jun: 45.37 km
    17th Jun: 21.88 km

    Got caught in a monsoon on the way out yesterday so had to abandon the ride. Sadly took a tumble yesterday (not on the bike but monsoon rain, wet leaves, slick shoes and rushing) and now covered in bruises and abrasions so I think I'll have to skip the riding for a few days as I can't even sit down at the moment. Hopefully back soon so I can hit my minimum target.

    Month to date: 458.76 km

    Year to end May: 2,652.34 km

    (Jan: 393.82 km; Feb: 538.62 km; Mar: 315.82 km; Apr: 531.22 km; May: 872.86 km)
