Today I was really happy to cycle again. The hotel was very old and the room was extremely small so I didn’t feel well and couldn’t deeply relax. Also I feel better in the evening after a number of kilometers done.
For the third time I drove the same way along river Verdon. Near the half of the way existes the way to the left (a gauche) or to the right (a droit). I took the right one. So I had to do some climbs of about 700 meters but quite easy.
At the beginning it was a bit cold. Later and more in the height of the valley and on the right side it was really warm. I enjoyed it very much.
On the other hand mostly there was lots of traffic with lots of exhaust gases.
At the beginning it ran easy because downwards. During the climbs I didn’t feel so strong. But that should be normally because my muscles of the upper legs feel weak and hurt of sore muscles. I have sore muscles every day since I started. This is the same experience than last year.
At a Col I took a brake with a fantastic view to the gorge. I had eaten too much and it took about an hour until I felt better.
From 4 to 6 pm I felt full of power and made lots of kilometers. Also because of the permanent but light downhill. Also the sometimes occurring headwinds couldn’t really stop my run.
