19.99 miles

My strength was adequate but my energy was mediochre. I just didn’t feel like pushing myself.

My knee was protesting for the first 8 or 9 miles, as though I’d been over-using it, recently. This despite concerted stretching and icing yesterday. But towards the end of the ride it actually started feeling stronger – as though the muscles were supporting it – and it no longer felt sore.

9:30 pm – I went down for a nap around 3 pm, discouraged that my energy level was so low. But my knees are feeling noticeably better. Especially the bad one. Perhaps the stretching is already paying off.
