I awoke this morning and completed the same ride in reverse. It felt much easier even though it took the same amount of time.
The reson for this riding is to do with my plan to complete the Trans-Penine Trail Coast to Coast (TPTC2C), later this year from Southport to Hornsea over three days:
- Length: 215miles/346 Kilometers,
- Height Climbed: 2304m/9840ft.
I would imagine there needs to be a period of adaption, so I won't panic too much just yet. Normally I exercise for no more than an hour in a saw-tooth pattern of activity. With the headwind and the hills, what I did last night was pretty much full on throughout. The riding this morning did much to calm my anxieties.
So despite the mileage and the leg work over the past 12 hours or so, I will DL today!
