49m35s !?!

This morning, a combination of good tailwind (10-15km/h) and good timing at the traffic lights created the ideal condition for a new speed record. I managed to get to work in 49m35s. I felt strong!!!
The ride home was a bit slower since the wind was still going strong but at just over an hour, it's still a very respectable time. I think I will do well at the race with my new tires.

I think I will ride to work again tomorrow if the weather is good and then maybe a run on Friday or Saturday if I can squeeze it in. Then taper will start. I'm not quite sure how I should do taper for a Triathlon, maybe an easy ride and a short swim just to loosen up near the end of the week?

In the mix today: Matsuri's Forever Psychedelic and Hom-Mega's debut Full On.


  1. Congrats on the speedy commute!

    no idea about tapering for traithlons, but that sounds like a good plan.

  2. Nicely done! For our taper, just did a nice easy swim on the wednesday, and then a slow easy spin to get the legs moving on saturday morning before the race! You'll do awesome!!
