何かね、2週間連続で350+キロ走ると疲れてくるのが当然だけど、つらいね。脚が死んでる。

筋肉痛は確かにあるけど、特に辛くはない。筋肉痛は小学生のころから慣れてる。

ペースは結構下がってる。それでも平気。だって、半年前に比べるとまだ速い。

いや、辛いのはね、勢いが出せないこと。私はもっと強い、もっと速い、もっとスムーズな獣なのに、今週はただのサイクリスト

はぁ~。リカバリーって大変だよな~

So, it seems perfectly natural that riding 350+km/week for two weeks in a row would tire me out. My legs are completely wasted.

It’s true that my muscles are sore, but that’s not the problem. I’ve lived with near constant muscle soreness since I was an elementary school kid and I’m used to it.

I’m definitely riding more slowly, but that’s not the problem either. Compared to six months ago my exhausted pace is still better than my top pace then.

No, the part that’s hard to handle is that the fire has become inaccessible to me. I am stronger than this, faster than this, smoother than this. I am a beast, or so I should be, but this week I feel like nothing more than another cyclist on the road.

Blarrrrm. Recovery days are the worst.
