    Cycling. Forget cars. Animals.

    Crickey, I thought a deer in Eltham was bad, but the Boulie is next level. I have heard there have been a few car-deer accidents out in Warrandyte which is not so hard to believe.

    I know a bunch of guys that have hit roos. Roos and utes are probably the two biggest dangers on our morning rides. We have started seeing deer in Eltham in the mornings. Saw a massive Stag with a full rack a couple of months ago. Wombats are pretty bad on the trails, a couple of mates have hit them but I haven't seen one yet. I shaved the arse of a rabbit with my front tyre at about 45km/h once. Just missed a snake returning from Baw Baw once. Thought it was a stick, then a dead snake as I got closer. Got a bit of a shock when it lifted it's head as I slipped past it.

    How long have you been doing tri's for?

    Crickey, just realized this is a triathlon forum. The whole Trannies thing confused me. Guess I should give this triathlon thing a crack one-day then.

    Rode to work via the Dandenongs. Had a Crème Brûlée and it was good.

    Giro Della Donna - Alberto Contador

    Yeah, last year was the wettest by far. Rained quite heavily at times.

    Giro Della Donna - Alberto Contador

    Judging by Instagram, FB, WhatsApp & Strava a bunch of people had a great time. Looks dryer than last year but still damp. Sucks to have missed out, will have to make sure I am back next year.

    Drink bottles

    I just chuck them in the dishwasher and then never pull them apart, following the what you don’t know can’t hurt you principal.

    What training did you do today...

    120kms with 2,200 with 2 donuts and a coffee. Compensating as the GDD looks highly unlikely. Was reasonably lucky with the weather, although got hit with a solid shower just as I descended Kinglake.

    Recovery - What are you using?

    Coffee and a donut. Ok, two coffees and two donuts.

    What training did you do today...

    50kms with 1,000 vert done hard this morning, then backed up with 5.5km at just under 5min/km pace (legs were cooked). Working on the assumption that the weather is going to make riding tough for the rest of the week.

    Garmin VO2max

    They seem hugely inaccurate as mine is reading nothing like Michael Woods' VO2max. 😁

    Giro Della Donna - Alberto Contador

    I heard it took a bit of negotiating to get him out and he is having a holiday with his brother straight after. We were trying to get him out on one of our bunchies, but I think that was a stretch too far. They have just extended entries, maybe I will turn up.

    Giro Della Donna - Alberto Contador

    Nah, last year was the wettest, I reckon. Still a beautiful area even in the rain, you just need to be careful on the descent into Marysville
