My unofficial time of 27:11 was EXACTLY the same time as four weeks ago. I was hoping to pick up a few seconds, but no go. My heart rate was pegged the entire time. Luckily this European stranger coached me the last mile. Some random rider guy came up beside me and was motivating me to keep going. I was passed with a couple of minutes to go and this random coach advised me he was slowing down and I could catch him again. I manged to almost hold the guy until the last few seconds and let him go. Thx god coach came by as I would have been worse this time than 4 weeks ago when I was sick. Next time, I am going to roll with the TT helmet and see if I can buy a few seconds.
