    The last few day's I've been looking over memorymap for a 10 mile TT training route...well I found one that takes me Harrowgate lane onto the back road to Hartburn interchange, onto Yarm via Allens west. Turn left at The Cleveland Bay then down Yarm Rd to Yarm La. Then it's a sprint finish on the last 200 - 300m through the depot gates......Details

    Dist:- 10.14 miles (door to door)
    Max spd:- 40.5mph
    Avg spd:- 17.5mph
    Avg Pace:- 3:26min/mile
    Time:- 34:48!!!!!!!

    Boy was I pleased with myself...I would've been quicker if I was fully awake....it was 0515 when I set off!!!

    But then coming home I went up Durham rd (the hilliest of my commute routes)

    Dist:- 3.38 miles
    Max spd:- 22.4mph
    Avg spd:- 15.0mph
    Avg pace:- 4:00/mile
    Time:- 13:33!!!!! My quickest time yet

    I tried getting out of the seat on the climbs and keeping my cadence after being inspired by a certain Mr. Armstrong...High cadence over big gears and I do believe it may have worked...also I was a lot less knackered when I got home.

    Not bad for a fat bloke
