I’m calling it day 11.. It’s easier for me to get my head around
It was hard to get out of bed this morning. I didn’t feel great and when I headed down for breakfast I could only stomach one mini croissant. The temperature had also dropped to just above freezing and I went into the ride with completely the wrong mind-set.
It was hard, all day. The weather was dull as was the scenery and I was constantly lacking in energy.
When I stopped for lunch I hit a really low point and was almost falling asleep whilst eating. Luckily, I managed to eat enough of the meal (which quite frankly was disgusting) to get myself back on the bike.
The final 40 miles did not pass quickly but they were slightly better than the morning. I’m absolutely shattered now so hopefully a good sleep will bring me up a bit!
Having said that, once again, I could barely eat any dinner. I’m currently eating less than I would on a normal day so I’m really hoping this wears off quickly.
