I have been off the bike for the last two days which is unusual for me as unless I am away on business I ride every day. I came down with a cold and sore throat on Friday after numerous soakings and by Sunday I felt pretty rough. Monday I didn’t feel any better but by today I felt well enough to get a ride in before work. As I only had an hour I decided to go for a pretty high intensity workout but my legs felt like jelly and my asthma was really playing me up on the climbs.
I Really pushed way too hard today and ended up feeling unwell for the rest of the day but at least I am back in the saddle. What was strange was that my tarmac felt all wrong and I just couldn’t get comfortable on it. It felt just like my saddle was way too low although it definitely hadn’t changed.
