I am feeling much better and saner after yesterday's race.
I'm not very sore, and my tightness is in all the right places (hammies and butt, not quads or calves). I've been buzzing with energy since about 4pm yesterday afternoon, and I was really happy with my swim tonight at squad (main set: 2 x 1000, mixed free and back). I'm really looking forward to jumping back on the bike tomorrow, and I can't wait to run.
It's just sunk in that in the last four weeks I've done a hard half ironman, a metric century training ride, (most of) a tough Olympic distance, and (all of) a not-so-tough Olympic distance. Phew! No wonder I'm a little overdone.
And more importantly, I have (nearly) five more weeks to train and recover for Tauranga. And two of those weeks are WORK FREE!
