My legs are getting better slowly – I don’t really notice my quadriceps tendons throughout the day now, just occasionally. My IT bands are still a little tight, at the moment I’m just going out for one ride a week (work, etc. has been getting in the way of cycling, I need a job where I’m paid to cycle!) and the IT bands only start getting sore towards the end of the ride.
I saw the cyclists finishing London-Southend on Sunday which made me a little depressed; this time last year I was much fitter having cycled to the start and come back via the long route, but I didn’t do it this year as my legs are suffering and I don’t think I’m fit enough to do it justice. It’ll be a long road back to fit as I have to nurse my legs for a bit longer, it’s very frustrating!
