I am now feeling completely recovered. I went out for a ride along the canal; I felt so healthy, I decided to continue through to Rother Valley, even though this would give a total of 25 miles. I arrived there hardly seeing anyone on the trails. When I got back to Staveley, I turned into the headwind along the canal and realised why it was previously so effortless. I peaked at 141 HR while slowly pedalling on the flat into the wind.
