Bristolsparks and Razor, take care and rest up, recovery is important.
Good running Buttercup.
I survived the sportive, the rain and wind accompanied me, but the rain was not too heavy but the low clouds meant you could not see the top of the hills we ended up in. The evil organisers put in Whitedown Lane which is a long windy and narrow 18% hill which I knew would be too much so I walked up it, but that was the only one. 45 miles done as I missed a couple of signs and went the wrong way (should have been 50). Just over 3000 feet of climbing. So quite happy although the body is a bit sore, mainly a grazed and bruised elbow and arm, as I had an embarrassing fall. I clipped in after a stop and managed to over balance and due to the wet road just went flying in front of about 10 men, who did stop and check that I was OK and I even failed to swear which is most unusual. The bike will get washed tomorrow as I had to get home, shower then go out to do the weekly shopping.
FiL has made a slight improvement and I got on the turbo this evening for an hour. I got an ache in the right knee towards the end of the session, hope it is something minor as the sportive on Saturday is 50 miles.
Bit of a quiet weekend on the training front. Went out with a friend for a walk/run 5k on Sunday morning, good to have a natter and discover I could run a bit, especially on the bits with no ice. Tuesday I did my usual swim session and stayed until the very end as not working but missed Pilates as Mr Steady and I had to go down to Lymington to visit his dad in hospital.
Hoping to get a good turbo session done today and looking forward to a sportive on Saturday.
DD uncover the exercise bike and do 30 minutes. It will be enough to get the mojo back. As the weather improves hopefully you will feel more inclined to get out and cycle.
I went for a walk tonight, was still very tired but at least the legs felt OK. I need to do my stretches this evening though.
Looks like it could be a tough day tomorrow on the family front, even Mr Steady has managed to break the car tonight, tinkering around that has resulted in some part in the engine bay has broken, so we will be doing 200 miles in my little car.
