2367km for me for the first half of the year. Fell away a bit in June, due to illness (manflu!) and a right knee that was getting sorer and sorer. Gave myself the entire 2nd half of June off to let the knee settle down a bit.

After much consternation, I switched back from my DHB shoes (that I got a couple of months ago) to my old Diadoras (and their soles that have been superglued back together!) - and its been like magic. I just couldn't get the cleats back far enough on the DHBs (which were great shoes otherwise), and the knee felt 100% more stable and rock-solid back in my old shoes.

Feeling great getting back into it with a much better knee, so aiming for a 3000km 2nd half of the year. Now biggest issue is finding a replacement shoe as I know these Diadoras won't last. Just ordered a pair of Shimano RC7's, mainly based on the huge cleat position range they have, so fingers crossed they work out... :-)

So into the second half of 2018 now. The crash which resulted in a fracture to my pelvis at the start of April didn’t end up costing me much as 5 days after the incident, and much to my surprise I found that although I couldn’t walk, I could ride on the trainer without a problem. So 5 weeks of Zwift and I didn’t miss a beat. Enjoying some nice rides out on the cold winter Tassie roads at the moment. On track and getting stronger for a crack at a few road events later in the year.

I need a big second half but should still make it to 10.5k this year. Lots of work to do though.

I know that feeling, I wear S-Works shoes and have orthotics for them custom made. I hope they never change the basic design of them - those shoes are perfect. Hopefully you'll get no troubles further.

Before this, I have always thought people were being a bit overly-sensitive about problems swapping between shoes. Feel a bit silly now! Wish my Diadora model was still in production, but these shoes are 5+ years old almost (I have very much gotten my money's worth!)...

Had a bit of a hiccup on the trail this afternoon.

It grumbled it's way thru a shift about 100m before I felt something brush my leg. Seems the securing bolt fell out. Explained the less than stellar shifting from the last week or so.

And as Murphy would have it I didn't have any Allen keys with me to raid a bottle cage bolt so I MacGuyvered it back together to get back to the car. Had a strategically placed stick holding it up from underneath and a rubber band from my Garmin mount (not pictured) holding it in at the top for the slow(er) ride back.
