Quick Monday Morning Meditative Ride

Unfortunately was only able to get a quick ride on the tarmac this morning due to a number of early meetings, coupled with some out-of-the-blue pain in my left knee.

Although today’s ride started out fine, it rapidly devolved into strong pain. My left knee started to hurt like someone smashed it with a jackhammer, which is a type of pain I had never yet experienced. There is no apparent reason for this pain; the weekend I felt fine, this just showed up out of nowhere.

While I dig into potential causation for the pain, the only thing I can think of is because of lack of sleep and minimal recovery time after spinning quite a bit over the weekend. I am hopeful the pain quickly subsides so I can hit the pavement tomorrow and do a full 50k. At the absolute least I should be able to spend no more than 90 minutes to hit the almost-40k mark.

We shall see soon enough now now wont we?

Slippery Sunday Spinning

Grabbed a quick Sunday morning ride before an early downpour commenced, but caught quite a bit of the preamble, getting a somewhat wet on the latter end of the short ride. It is utterly humid as fsck today and feels really nasty outside.

Suddenly Slow Spring Spinning

Well look at that! After all the crazy rain the last 36-ish hours, even all through this morning, a sudden turn of events has the sky blasting blue over the western side of Tokyo 23! Sometime around 11:30am to noon the sky turned a bright ocean shade of blue, and the rain stopped storming down upon the neighborhood. This was the chance I had been secretly waiting on, and as luck would have it, I now was faced with an opportunity to finally hit the streets!

Whirlwind Wednesday Morning Sweating

Since I failed to ride yesterday due to being abnormally tired, this morning I woke immediately at 4am and was bright eyed and bushy tailed. After hopping out of bed and taking care of the necessities, I jumped into my superhero cycling gear, downed 750ml of water for hydration, ate a very small bowl of oatmeal just to get some energy, and then headed out on the tarmac for an awesome ride. The temperature this morning was perfect, with little to no noticeable humidity, and an ever so slight yet comforting breeze.
