I seem to have survived my run yesterday even though I failed to stretch until very late last night. Been up in London today, so only just escaped from the office. Tonight is supposed to be cycling but I need to go to the
supermarket for the weekly shopping so tomorrow looks much more likely.
I got home and decided to go out on the hybrid rather than the roadie for a change, so quick check over and off I went. 1 hour done and included a trip to the shops for some potatoes for dinner. Was slower than normal but kept it in an easy gear the whole time, no changing up or down, had to get out of the saddle a few times but good practice.
Well done MC, a walk/run for 26 miles is tough and having to do it in 6 hours, my mainly walked marathon took 7 hours. Hope you recover well.
Mikasa, glad to hear you managed a little mtb ride, I looked at Swinley Forest and might at some point hire a bike to have a ride over there.
I went out with the slow group at cycle club this morning but we ended up going at the next group up pace of just over 12 mph, so another 27 miles done. My legs felt tired by the end and a hot chocolate and slice of cake in the café at the finish was most welcome. Hip flexor needs icing but think I have survived quite well.
This afternoon Mr Steady and I went for a walk and did about 3 miles, so not quite a brick session but hopefully it did me good.
I went out and did a little ride with 2 club mates, 35 miles through the villages around the Surrey Hills rather than up and down them, mainly on A roads but the traffic was not too bad. I took malt loaf with me to re fuel, will try it again tomorrow. There was only one big hill that I had never tried cycling up and I did it, very slow but conquered none the less, then lots of little lumpy bits. The bluebells were out in the woods and smelt strongly,
I just hope that my legs recover and I can do another ride tomorrow, I got cramp when I got home and drank lots of fluid, but will foam roller later.
