One more day and I start running again 🙂
It’s Saturday, and this is usually “long run” day. So, why not make it a “long ride” day 🙂
I rode one of the most beautiful parts of the Cape Peninsula, and one of the two major inclines of Two Oceans Marathon: The Chapmans Peak Drive.
It was a lovely day for a ride or a run: cloudy, no wind, temperatures in the low 20°C range.
This 3 hour ride was lovely to get used to longer sessions again.
The nice thing about riding a bike: You get around much faster and can cover longer distances. I have to admit, that this injury recovery period has a big plus: I got back on the bike to ride in one of the most beautiful areas of our planet.
I spoke with my wife to ride a bit more on our bikes together, after Comrades. It’s simply too beautiful not to do it 🙂
While I did my 60 km bike ride, two club mates of my running club AAC did their 50 km long run, preparing for Comrades on June 1st. I would have joined then, if I’d be without injury.
I met them just past Hout Bay, we all were on our way up.
Andrew (white shirt) and Arden are doing their first Comrades and just completed the Two Oceans Ultra 2 weeks ago. Arden managed to finish in 5h 59min 57 sec. And grabbed the last bronze medal. Well done! It was great seeing you guys on your run.
