The ride back was much better as the sun had come out and the Colorado afternoon was picture perfect! I zipped into my driveway and dismounted the bike only to feel a very strange sensation. "What is wrong with me?" I asked myself. Was I sick? Was my head still a bit wobbly from my mountain bike crash a couple of weeks ago?
Nope...that feeling was something that I have not felt in a while, about 4 months to be exact (that's how long I have not been running because of my Achilles "challenge"). The feeling of FATIGUE! Ah! I love it! I was finally tired from a training session and while it was only 32 miles with a break in the middle, it was good to experience that type of fatigue that validates why you do what you do.
Okay, next check-in and blog should be post my first run back...at least I hope so as next week I may try to attempt a very short run!
