Nice day/date for it!
Two antibiotics really got to me, requiring two months to feel normal again, which was very discouraging. I kept at it (riding) but performance was record slow (for me) in this year’s Eastern Sierra Double.
About 10 days ago I felt my strength increasing. Three days ago I had a strong ride with confirming signs of a body “happy” again.
Today I had the strongest ride of 2019. It’s so satisfying when my body works at its best—high power output with a sense of ease and fluidity, and only minor issues (a bit of patella pain starting at mile 52 or so, resolved by stretching bit between intervals).
The important thing is to keep at it, knowing that slumps and problems occur and will resolve!
