Thought I would be able to squeak another and hopefully faster 1KM Sprint in before the window closes a day from now. Alas, it was not to be as I burnt myself out in intervals and then the wind picked up just before my final attempt.
Still, happy enough with my original time as it was very much a downwind/upwind out and back affair. I’ve never had really any luck with fast times when one of the directions is a solid block headwind. Seems like the downwind part is never enough to make up for it.
It’s a good reminder that getting in a placeholder effort early when the window opens is a good strategy just in case the conditions or body aren’t there later on.
Looking forward to some of the longer stuff coming soon!
