Ok. I took a few days off. One day was too cool for the bike, one day I was recovering and two days I was just too busy to take a 3 hour bike ride. I wanted to take today off also but I forced myself to go for a run.
30 minutes of unpleasantness
I was slow, my left knee, both ankles and both feet hurt. I don't know if it is running outside, running in the sun for the first time, heat, humidity, or the pollen, but it was just a bad run. I am going to try to make time to finally do this long bike ride tomorrow but I have my first QP defense the next day...
So, overall, I have 4 1/2 weeks to be ready. I am not feeling great about it right now.
