Je suis pooped

I think that's the technical term :)

Went out for a Gael Force Training cycle with one of the lads that's also doing it. Idea was to do about 1h 40m - 2hrs worth of cycling, so after drawing up a route earlier in the day, we set off around 7pm. It was good going, we done 47.5km in 1hr 54m 24s, with an average speed of 24.9kmph. It eased off a bit towards the end, our average was closer to 26kmph for most of the first 30km.

Found one or two nice hills around here as well, which will need to be hit again. They absolutely kill me and the only way to get better at them is to keep doing them. The GF route will be hilly enough, so its important to get the work in now.

Once I got home, I decided to do a "quick" lap of the block. There was absolutely nothing quick about it, but no harm doing a bit of running while tired like that...gets the body used to it. More details here.
