My secondary injuries are coming though today, the left ankle which was eaten by the fence and hurt immediately is fine now, not fine are my right triceps, left triceps, right shoulder, left shin, right leg (hip area), left groin *and* I have a scabby nose.

today's 28miler was quite hard, the right inside hip/butt cheek/groin hurts so if I sit and try to power down it shouts 'NO WE SHALL NOT BE DOING THAT, TODAY' in only the way a sore and broken body can.

I got to ride in short sleeves though, which was nice, although the wind was being very strong and irritating again.

Have you thought about *not* riding and allowing your body to heal properly?

Wait, I already know the answer to that.

Active recovery, works better as it pushes the bad out and pushes the good into the muscles and bits.

I'll be fine by Sunday.. gotta do 40+miles tomorrow though. yowch!

LOL @ active recovery :)

I had a day off yesterday and felt really strong on my ride today. Yay.

Active Recovery works - don't knock it.

I only managed 12 ave today, but that was probably more to do with the squishy forks and hillier route... and being really really bored of riding.
