I thought I was alone in feeling fatigued after the Tagaytay ride?

Real Cyclists

I talked to Nolite and Gerry regarding the post Tagaytay Ride.  Gerry said he felt very fatigued.  His thighs and knees were sore.

I talked to Nolite this morning and he shared the same sore feelings.  He said could not manage to get out off the bed last Monday.

I had to be absent from work Monday morning.  I was sore all over.

This reflect the high intensity of effort we put into the bike ride last February 24, 2013,  The ride was fast and furious.

How did I do in the bike ride last Sunday Feb 24, 2013?

                            At Daang Hari -AZ road intersection, Jorgeusbiker can still smile

I think I did not do very bad nor very well in my bike ride last Sunday, February 24, 2013.

For the first time ever, I did not feel good enough to go to work the following day.  Yesterday am, I had to beg off work.  My legs and whole body ached.

High lights/what I recalled:

> I was at the back of peloton and chased them when they were doing 43 kph at c6.  I think I passed some fellow Recyclists.

>From Bicutan to Alabang, I was with the lead pack,

> At Daang Hari, everybody was just riding until the last 3 km when everybody biked fast and furious;  I relaxed when it was 2 km till Bacoor and I was passed.

> At Paliparan I was ahead for about 7 km or so;  I lost the speed at the last 3 km.

>At Greenwoods, I was at the middle pack

>At Tagaytay last 10 km, I could see the back of the other riders.  I even passed Gerry.  I relaxed at the last 2 km.  Gerry remarked yesterday that I had heavy gear:  39 x 17 doing the Tagaytay climb.

Just to let you know you know the punishing pace, at Bicutan at 711, guys were looking for efficascent oil and were complaining of aching thighs.

I could notice that the pace slackened at C6 on the way back (fatigue set in).

I am happy with this ride considering that a young rider had cramps and had to quit;  and there were guys who had muscle fatigue.  (Mine set in only yesterday)  I had sound sleep last night too.

Our wishes and prayers for Recyclists

Real Cyclists

Angono, Rizal   PHL   |  February 25, 2013

Here are some of our wishes and prayer for Recylists:

l.  That Choco2 (Jeruel Mariposa) gets well soon and that his bike straighten itself so that he can ride again;

2.  That the bad drivers:  motorcycle, car drivers (like the Getz driver that nearly clipped Ben, and the Mazda zoom2 car that intentionally tried to hit VM) find enlightenment find the light and be better, or that the Lord take them away

3.  That the pigs of Tito learn how to take a bath themselves so that Tito can ride more often with us;

4.  That we learn how to take good pictures just like Richard as we ride;

5.  That Richard be given strong body so that he does not get sick often, so with the children of Pangskie so that they can ride with us more often

6.  That our strong riders become stronger and we all ride better.

7.  That somebody lend an old derrailleur to Joseph so that he wont get cramps

8.  That the oldies can keep up with the fast and the furious

9.  That there will be more riders who will join the Recyclists;

10.  That the Lord keep us safe and healthy always
