Recommenced my commute today, 25.5km usually takes 55 to 58 minutes. Previous PB was 50:45 standing for a couple of years. I have long dreamed of breaking it.
This morning in no wind conditions I did it in 48:12
I believe it is due to the residual enthusiasm left over from the GVBR. I had a ball the whole ride although I struggled up the hill after Lavers Hill, Genarally I maintained an above average pace (for me) @ 28-32 km on the flatter roads. It seems to have paid off with a PB this morning, my return trip wasn't to shoddy either but I had some shopping to do along the way so no PB.
Has anybody else noticed an improvement?
