5x50 Day 1

Yesterday was a little more, er, devastating than I expected. Along with the expected dearth of energy, I also have four blisters. Every time I walk anywhere, I am reminded exactly where each of them is.

So, instead of running 5k today, I went for a cycle ride of 11k. I know it's only about half the effort of a 5 k run but I'll make up for it in the coming days and weeks.

The rise itself went well. When I got back, I wasn't tired but I had absolutely no energy left at all.  So this evening is given over to chile con carne and rosé. Oh, and cake.  Lots of cake.
