My legs hadn’t really gone on strike today, so Sandy and I headed out on the planned off-road ride which on reflection proved to be a bit of a bad move. My legs were totally lifeless, and the climb out of the valley proved something of a struggle. Even on the flat bits it was almost impossible to maintain any sort of speed. To be honest, going from hardly any riding at all to 4 rides in 5 days was probably a step too far, but I have done about 20% of this years miles in the last 7 days.
I think I’ll forego a ride tomorrow and give my legs a rest.
