No race this weekend, and no hard riding as I decided it was time for a bit of recovery. I decided we should do a hike on Monday to enjoy the holiday, so up Castle hill goat track and down the road we went. It took a lot longer than I expected, but it was beautiful and breezy and we had eaten a big breakfast with our son at the local Greek, so relax and enjoy.
So of course today I am enjoying the pain of using different muscles than usual. I am hobbled unless I ride, which acts like a tonic and loosens everything back up for a few hours, then things seize back up again.
This just in, there is a possum fight in my back yard. I am not getting involved.
Anyway, I have to hike more in future, I am obviously not getting a full workout from cycling. I am looking forward to later starts, since I need the sun on my back when it is cool, and winter is perfect in daytime. No 5am rides for me for a few months I hope, and that is a good thing.
