Bike-commute day 66—to work

Friday, 12 August 2011

The ride today was laborious, so much so that I asked myself often, Are you coming down with something? Didn't you get enough sleep? Are you run down or overtraining? Or is it that last night's dinner didn't have enough calories for this morning's ride? I'll wait out the day to see how I feel...

Late in the afternoon, after a larger lunch than usual, and after a large cup of fluids, I feel better at my desk. Since I'm driving home, there's no road test for me tonight. But my guess is that the lowered food intake for dinners is resulting in a lower energy store.
