Today I did a long run of 32km in 3hrs. I know it is not fast by any stretch of imagination, but it was windyyyyy 6Bft W. Extra hard!
Yesterday evening I also biked 30km, me and the strong winds battling it out. In a bizarre way, I enjoyed it!
Conclusion: Last weekend's rest paid off. As I like to see it, rest is an investment to my (body and my) training.
