Two is good, three is better
To Mandai Road, 38 km. I barely want to get out of bed today, but I do. However, instead of going off-road, I coast on the road. Until a roadie on a Lightspeed passes me. I hang on for a while but he drops me eventually. At least, I get my speed and heart rate up. Then a couple pass me by, with the guy on a carbon Kuota. I coast along until I feel I can do better, and blast past uphill at 44 km/h, then reach 46 km/h as I catch the draft from a truck. It's hard to train alone. Training - and living - is better with a friend. If no friends are available, helpful strangers will have to do.
