After 10 days working near Melbourne Australia with no cycling, copious amounts of over eating and lack of sleep It felt really good to be able to go for a ride today. I managed to get a fair bit of walking in during my trip but the nasty long flights in economy class really take a toll on your fitness. It was quite a shock how much cooler California had become whilst I was away in Oz and it was certainly cooler than Melbourne.
I felt pretty sluggish on my short recovery ride and pretty tired after not really getting much sleep on last nights flight but I also felt 100 times better for getting a ride in. I hope I haven’t picked up any bugs on the plane so that I can get back into training.
