Day 10 today was the Currow CC Annual leisure tour and 63 miles of cycling in glorious weather for a change. I was reminded about the song “I could have danced all night” because I sure felt that I could have cycled all day today. The spin today left Currow, headed for Tralee, Castlemaine, Milltown, Killorglin, Killarney and back to Currow via Farranfore. The pace was mostly controlled which is only right for a leisure cycle but I did get an opportunity to stretch my legs ascending the Tralee side of the hill to Castlemaine as well as the way home from Killarney which was lively enough for anyone’s level. Legs felt good and appreciated the last number of days when I took it easy.
1/3 third of the way into the challenge and I have found great benefit to having cycled the last 10 days in a row. I do feel stronger than when I started. I think the key so far was knowing when to take an easy day when I needed it. I will be intereted to see if I find the next 20 days as straightforward.
