It was a last minute decision to head up to Hanmer Springs for this race. I hadn’t raced it in over 3 years so I decided on the morning of the race that it would be a fun event to do once again. My coach had me on a 4hr steady pace training ride so I made it tried to ride as conservatively as possible with an average heart rate in the end of 147bpm. Nice and low! The course was great fun and I ended up riding for another couple of hours home on the road bike to round off a good solid day on the bike. Hopefully I’ll be back next year.
