8 days of (complete) rest. No running, no cycling, no swimming, no weight training. Just a good amount of walking (thanks tube strikes!). And I'm feeling a lot better. It's the 9th day since the race where I sorta broke my training cycle and I have almost no muscular aches now (just a little bit in my right glute). I've slept, eaten lots (oddly lost a little weight), and tried not to get wound up about the lack of training. There's plenty of time before UK 70.3 - 18 weeks to go, which means 16 weekends of cycling up (and down) hills, plus a spring training camp in 3 weeks time, a little sharpener race in Mallorca in 13 weeks and a couple of little sprints in between to help with the excitement and race practice. This is fine.
I'm ready to start ramping things up now.
