Today all became clear. The reason for yesterday’s lack of oomph.
I awoke with pretty bad pain in my calves. The pain was from Saturday’s run. The pain was the pain that was in the post when I sat on my bike last night – just 24 hours after finishing my longest run of the year.
So in that context, averaging 32km/h in quite windy conditions with muscle pain in the post… I’ll take that as a positive sign.
Trouble on the horizon. Two races this week. Tuesday and Wednesday. How will I manage to pull that off?
