Just spinning along on the front of the bunch @ 33kmh (same pace as all the previous leaders had been tapping out) and this guy comes up beside me and asks me to back it off a bit as he's just come back from a week off due to bronchitis...WTF? Back it off a bit yourself buddy and don't sit on the front you goose! Stayed @ 33 and he didn't keep whining...so really? Recovery pace surely.
Nice morning until a little drizzle kicked in at Luna Park...tempted to pull into Racer to sit it out but in the end it wasn't too bad - I hear it was hailing in Essendon.
Monday is recovery day. If you're being asked to back it off, then slow down just a bit? 33km/h in a cross-wind is a little more than recovery pace for most people.
