Today I’ve been busy riding. Headed north early to go to the bank – paperwork is a neverending story. It was 32 degrees when I left Alcobendas at 10 o’clock and I thought I was suffering, until I saw a rather large group of militairs, all geared up with helmets and backpacks, apparently ready for day out. At least I had some wind.
I headed up to the mountains and rode some mountain passes where it was nice and cool, even some sprinkles of rain. I really enjoyed myself so I continued up to Segovia and snapped a couple of photos and headed back again. On my way I stopped at the gym for a swim and a visit to the physioterapist. The treatment for my shoulder is now finished, yay!! (for this time at least). Maybe I had overdone it a bit today, I got a nose bleed in the changing room and felt more dizzy than normal after the treatment. Nevertheless, I felt that I’m rather good in city traffic nowadays when cruising back to the centre. After today’s ride I have now done 930 kilometres. On Friday, the ride to Seseña will add 40, that is enough. And when circling around the one way street to get access to “my” square and parking place I can feel the beads of sweat rolling off my back and down between my buttcheeks. My saddle has salty marks. Tomorrow will be another day with 40 degrees, and I’m happy to not have to ride.
