comin' good

After a determined rest week and one weight session on Thursday I am coming good at last. I had a fast run today, lots of gusty wind in every direction it seemed. 36.5 km/hr at the top of Angus Smith drive. This is my daily test up a very shallow hill and that is a good speed. Back at the full on training Tuesday, but at least now I know it won't slow me down forever. And really, I am only racing myself.

This BLOG isn't called cycling paradise for nothing, I really do love it here. This weekend (any minute actually) BoaB and I will be heading up to Paluma. A magic mix of rainforest, dirt roads (no single track for me thanks) down through magnificent eucalyptus grandis forest to dry cattle country. Then a hard old slog back up to Paluma, at the top of the range.

Good food, friends, bubbly wine and the sounds of the rainforest. It might even be muddy and wet.

Got to go pack the camera!

Hey we are having our own wine ride on Saturday. I think you know the area.
