Might be that I can't handle coffee anymore. Stomach feels pretty bad after coffee. I thought it might have been milk.. But that isn't it.

If it is coffee, then it'll solve a long running problem for me. Bad thing is I love coffee.

Mate, if you're blitzing through espresso all the time, it's hardly surprising that you aren't feeling flash. I've become a dedicated two coffees a day guy (after never touching the stuff much before I hit 25) but I'm always getting it with tons of sugar and milk; double shots have been making me feel seedy lately too...

Let me see if things will settle down a bit this afternoon.

I do have double shot espressos all the time.. :( been trying skim double shot cappuccino instead, not much better.

Edit: Weather starting to look very dark and cloudy in the CBD.

The Kangazilla Bubbler run (7pm from the Toongabbie shop) is looking mighty attractive right now. Need to get the wife onto the trainer :roll:

This happens to me. #dailydouble

Usually on an empty stomach, or if I've been smashing the coffee's all day.

I just power through it. I know i'll feel better soon.

Cheers all for a nice gentle roll, and being OK with me gassing it up. SuperArvs broke a spoke trying to keep up ;)

I swear to God, I'm over missing the start. It's just criminal trying to get enough power down to catch up. Turns out I was about 100 seconds behind. Must remember I am unlikely to ever catch a breakaway by myself, even if it is good practice :shock:

You can always do a highway shoulder run. That's what i used to do as i can never get to the start on time. shaved loads of time to the trip.

until i hit a black rear bumberbar at 50km/h+ :evil: and did what probobly looked like an awesome 8) ENDO.
bottles, flew off but i managed to stay upright. :| . i've stopped going on the shoulder ever since.

eon's guide to the FPR:

You can do XYZ, it's really good. I used to do it.
I did XYZ but I nearly ABC'D and now I CBF'D. Don't forget to bring a towel.

True story, bro.

If you can get to Toongabbie at 7pm/Old Windsor bollards at 7:10, or Rooty Hill around 7:45 (coffee stop), Kangazilla Mal has a good FPR. One of Trek_Arty's mates reckoned it was absolutely brutal AKA awesome :)
