Blog Getting There
Went for a 33 mile ride this week. It would have been 30 but I got slightly lost pursuing a couple of random cyclists - damn my competitive nature!
Blog Getting back to normal
Did 45km on Monday. I felt pretty normal & my speed is coming back. So glad to have shaken off the after effects of blood donation.
Blog Eye opener
Rode to Stratford and back today. I've never felt as exhausted as I did today. I thought I'd bitten off a bit more than I could chew. After a bit of research I found out it was a result of giving blood on Saturday - the after affects last for about 3 weeks! Hopefully I'll be ok in time for the main event but 3 weeks of limited ability will really put a dent in my training schedule.
