Did 75 km and 1500 m of climbing on my road bike around the Odenwald today. I was riding with a guy way faster than me and he really made me suffer on the false flat valley roads. When we were hitting the hills I hadn't really recovered, so I'm pretty tired now :D

So I did my first TT today, I borrowed my friends tri-bike with some nice wheels (no disc tho) and just went for it. The TT was 34 long and completely in 54 minutes, so around 38 km/ph. It was pretty demoralizing just getting overtaken by guys going at 44 km/ph on flat roads, I simply couldn't push harder than I did.

Fun experience. I like proper road racing better as I am much more of the explosive type on the hills around here (I dont have the highest FTP, but am very good at anerobic efforts at around 1-2 minutes, especially late on a ride/race) and like the tactics of that, but its interesting to try another discipline.
