Here is a summary of my training over the past week.
After finishing the twin last Sunday, I spent this week in a calm way, doing a lot of stretching and some cycling to help me recover. Next week I have an appointment with the physio to see if he can unload the area once and for all so that it won't be a problem again...
After a total rest on Monday, I did the first recovery run on Tuesday, which started too hard, but after the too effusive start I remembered what I had gone to do and relaxed the pace, looking to work on Z1/Z2 power.
On Friday I got back on the bike, this time focused on not overdoing it from the beginning, so short and quiet ride.
On Sunday, again, another quiet walk, trying not to exceed the power. The sensations with the twin are better and I hardly notice any discomfort. This week I have a visit to the physio, to see if he can finish helping me unload the twins and I return to normal activity.
And with that... thanks for reading!
