To tell you the truth I was starting to struggle after awhile
. Was wondering why the back of my shoulders were a bit sore today...
No idea, but repeatedly whacking it mid ride seems to have done the trick, as it had gone by today
Oh oh! Had an extra February day today so was able to beat last months number of rides by one. Thanks leap yr!
Legs a bit tired so was going to do a bit of a cruise today taking it easy. But got a little enthuisiastic and ended up going a bit harder than I should in places. Wind conditions were a little tougher out to Lytt and back than last time so I was trying to limit the damage
Probably would have been better to put my effort into tomorrows ride.
HR has definitely improved and no running away on me up the climbs like it has been doing. It is back to how I remember it was, when I was a bit faster. So now my perception of effort and HR are finally correlating. At least on todays ride, which was a good feeling. Is a little concerning when your HR seems suddenly different to how you remember it over a period of yrs.
Nor East rather than Sou West so no tailwind to Govs or direct tail to finish which makes quite a difference I think.
