My first Richmond Park TT of the year.
I didn't feel great. My legs felt like blocks of wood.
My new TT bike still felt a little alien.
I put pressure on myself by building up the event in my head.
I didn't really relax until the rider behind had caught me.
Then I started to ride my own race.
I enjoyed it. I enjoyed being part of the competition.
Very happy with the result, if not with my performance.
Going to keep working at it.
Thank you to those who got out of bed so early to marshal.
Thank you to Cyclefit for the bike.
And thank you to Sam, without whom I'd never have made it to the startline.
