Road bike (commute) 1:01:45 [3] 30.29 km (29.4 kph)
shoes: Giant TCR

Achilles wasn't quite 100% today and I could feel it most of the way to work but nothing serious.

Back on the bike means back to avoiding knobs on the path and roads. I encountered Incompetent Cyclist and Ego Cyclist today. First guy was having troubles with his bike just north of Mt Henry bridge and conveniently swerved his bike across in front of mine as I was trying to overtake him.

Second guy showed up when I stopped behind another cyclist at the Mill Point Rd crossing and avoided getting in front of the car also waiting there but this other knob cyclist decided he needed to be in front of me, despite pulling up behind me so he went in front, then when the lights changed he missed clipping in and swerved across in front of me. Fortunately I was expecting more dick like behaviour from him after already being a knob once so I avoided running into him and took off.

Legs aren't used to riding at the moment and were struggling for much of this ride. Still vaguely contemplating taking the roadie over to Rylstone just to get in some cycling but it's too much trouble really.

Road bike (commute) 1:09:00 [2] 31.59 km (27.5 kph)
shoes: Giant TCR

Got out of work a few minutes early so I could get to my 5:30 physio appointment in Belmont on time. Achilles was fine on the way there.

Had a different physio today who did the usual electro treatment, ultrasound, massage and just for laughs threw down some needles. Difference was this guy said "I'm expecting some big twinges with that tight calf muscle" and I didn't believe him since neither the Subi physio nor the massage people managed it but he did what he promised. Ouch.

Calf was sore for the rest of the trip and went wee wee wee wee, all the way home.
