I’m beginning to feel tired. My body is not accustomed to the volume that I am throwing at it at the moment and today, for the first time, it informed me. The first subtle sign -that I didn’t recognise- was my replacing my long outdoor cycle with with a shorter, all be it more intense, session. The second and not so subtle sign was the pain in my right quad when I attempted to run: It was like the muscle was being torn… quite painful indeed. Anyway, for better or for worse, I managed to crank out a 40 min run – to bring my day total to two hours- without too many problems. Now I’m left with the daunting task of my last day of the big push: a 3-4 hour cycle… let’s see what happens.
