I pedalled home yesterday in the sun and warmth and sweated for England during and after the journey, the only incident of note was a first for me. While pedalling hard out of the saddle up the nasty climb towards what used to be the site of the old Dingle Pub, (but is now a retirement home) I had a bout of cramp in my right calf muscle, so much so I had to sit down and pedal the rest of the hill favouring my left leg while the cramp eased, I pootled the rest of the way home instead of going for it as I usually do. It was a shock to rediscover calf muscles!
This morning’s trip in was done in the grey and accompanying drizzle, but it was still warm so as soon as the drizzle landed on me it evaporated almost immediatley. I was wetter through sweat than the rain!
I’ve started to notice an annoying creak coming from the headset of my Giant Defy, maybe a dismantle and regrease is in order!
