had some energy to spare this late afternoon. Got on the Tacx for a fast and intense 30 minutes. Average heartrate just above 100bpm and with an average speed of 39kph I could not complain about the form of the day.
Felt like doing a recovery ride today so I kept the speed relatively low whilst focussing on flushing the fatigue out of my muscles. I still felt the aftermath of yesterdays Core workout, with aching legs and stiff hip and lower back muscles.
I had a good meal with my collegues and arriving home I felt the need to lose some calories so I went for almost an hour on the Tacx Satori.My legs felt strong an rested and I could maintain a good pace while keeping my average heartrate well below 100bpm.
Some really nice weather today with up to 14 degrees C. Not bad for late january. Pity I had to wordk. Arriving home I got on the Hilset on the Tacx Satori and went for an easy 53 minutes. Good pace but focussing on streaming the legs with blood and recovery.
It was raining slightly when I left with the Psychlo-X for a road ride. The snow had melted and left a lot of water on the trails so the decision to stay on-road was quickly made. I started out over the Zoete Waters and Sint Joris Weert towards the Langendaal and then taking a left towards Sint Agatha Rode. Left again a back to Sint Joris where I took a right turn towards Nethen. The wind was blowing in my favor now but the drizzle remained and kept myself and the roads wet. Over Hamme Mille and Gottechain I reached Beauvechain where I took a left towards Opvelp. Into Bierbeek and over the Haasrode Industrie to reach the Heverlee forest. Almost collided with a dog without a leach when I rode towards the War Cemetery. Good for an adrenaline rush but I was quite angry with the irresponsible owner. I don't want to imagine what would have happened if I had fallen off. Finishing the ride over the Sapellenbos and into Blanden. The legs felt fine and the averse weather and conditions provided quite a challenge to overcome and ride the bike.

Some heavy rain is forecast for the late afternoon and night so I'm guessing the snow will be gone by tomorrow, leaving behind a lot of mud and water. Today I settled as usual for a ride on the Tacx Satori. My legs felt fine and I was able to maintain a good pace with a average heartrate of 98 bpm.
