Nasty Case of the Wrong Legs

27 Oct 2007 at 08:00

A very misty and windy first hour today really destroyed my legs, leading to a major explosion with about 60% of the ride to go.

Wet air isn't very good to breathe leaving my panting at the top of most hills as I struggled to fuel the engine, but, as always, stopping's not acceptable, so I had to dig in *hard* as my legs faded. The middle section was a non-stop pedalling slogfest so I was glad when I got to the last hard climb of the day, to get a low cadence going and catch a rest on the way down.

Despite it being a bit slippy today, I didn't muff the decent from the pike up, so maybe I'm over my "hump".

41.2miles (12.6avg) | v Windy, Misty, Warm, Humid

P.S. Tranmere top of the league again.

The trail down from the mast road to Georges Lane (by Wilderswood) was dead slippery. I guess you probably rode UP it?
