More miles...

In a bid to start recreating cycling on less than fresh legs, I decided this week to do two 60+ mile rides on consecutive days. The route took me through Haddenham, Thame, Watlington, Henley, Marlow and High Wycombe and contained a sprinkling of challenging climbs (up to about 15% I think). I have found that slowing the pace a little makes a noticeable difference to recovery the next day so here's to going slow!

I'm off on a 2 week USAR (Urban Search and Rescue) course on Monday so the cycling will take a bit of a back seat for a while but I've got a 92 mile ride planned for the beginning of August that again, I will be doing on 2 consecutive days so I should be well prepared come D Day!
