Cycling (Nippy 30) 1:11:00  30.0 km (2:22 / km) +495m 2:11 / km
Sick again yesterday, this time vertigo & nausea. Happens every spring. Went out late today for a short ride after a failed strength session bc I felt a bit crappy. I couldn't keep much down yesterday. Felt ok on the bike, but v favourable tail wind helped my speed. Hopefully I'll feel back to normal tmrw. Not crappy normal. Good normal.
Cycling (100miler) 6:28:12  160.0 km (2:26 / km) +1121m 2:21 / km
OH YEAH!!! Made the full 100 miles today :-) :-) :-) Decided to head out & see how I felt, as woke feeling a lot better, & it was such a great day, already 24C by 10am (maxed at 32C!). I LOVE riding in dry heat & gorgeous sunshine :-) It's an out-and-back route along stunning & quiet Kent country lanes from home to Bethersden near Ashford, so figured if I fell to bits along the way, I could either wait for DD to ride to the end, then I'd rejoin him on his way back, or just go as far as I could & see how I felt. I felt good from the start, & ate all my food before the halfway point, so we stopped for a quick lunch there (including 2 pints of ice cold Coke, yum!!!) which was great as it fueled me the whole way back home & at no stage did I suffer. Really happy with this :-) DD has fixed all my bike setup issues too.
A stomach bug overnight put a stop to a long ride today. Not sure I'll have the energy for one tmrw either as its knocked me about :-(
Walk/Jolk 39:25  5.4 km (7:18 / km) +75m 6:50 / km
Needed to take a 2kg box to the PO today, so carried it walking for 12mins to warmup, then jogged with it 1.7k from there. I was surprised how burdensome that 2kg box was, but what really shocked me was when I jogged back without it, what a difference 2kg made!! I felt light & springy without it. That said, time is a bit slower today, I think bc it's really hot (28C here, yippee!!). Wore my new R2V2's as well. Not sure about them though - my right inner bit under the calf where the R2V2 ends was pretty tight by the end.
Strength (Pairs Super Sets) 30:00 
Gosh, that was way too hard outside today - 30C on our patio in the shade. I nearly made it through, but quads just died at the end of 7 squat jumps, so I finished then & came inside where it's a lovely 17C. 5,6,7,8,9,10 reps of each pair: box jumps/pushups; squat thrusts/side plank reach; reverse lunges/side Burpees; goblet squats/plank-ups; walking lunge/jump squats.
