    The weather remains dry and sunny and today I was home early from work and decided to take the Moots YBB out on the Green Meerdael BLOSO route. The route has been altered in the vicinity of the E40 and I followed the new trace along the E40 to the tunnel underneath it. Afterwards the trail was very well known and at some points I decided to take the bigger trails instead of the singletracks to avoid having to move too much on the bike. I tried concentrating on tensing my abdominal muscles during the climbs and succeeded rather well in doing so.

    Time for the Moots YBB. I pumped 2 bars of pressure in the front and rear tyre and set out for a ride into Meerdael Forest. I quickly learned that I needed to adjust a few things. A couple of tenths of a bar lower pressure in the front would suit me better. In the rear as well but maybe I will change the Rocket Ron for a bigger volume Racing Ralph as well. The rear disc brake also seems to be slightly too tight, causing the pads to have permanent contact with the disc, which tends to slow things down a bit.



    Nevertheless I had a good ride, enjoying the sunny but fresh weather, with a stiff breeze from the North. After an hour and a quarter I was nearing my home again.

    Last evening I had a Core Stab/Pilates one on one with Nancy Farzan. Amazing how manu muscles are weak and can be strengthened by some specific exercises.
    Today I felt that session in my core but decided to ride out and take it easy to let the morning stiffness wither away. I had the ambition to do a slightly longer ride so I sat out towards the Sonian Forest. Through Meerdael and the Doode Beemde and then up the ridges of the Yse valley and in Duisburg I could enter the Sonian Forest.



    I rode up to Jezus-Eik and then turned my Obed back in the direction of Eizer. Through Loonbeek and Neerijse and I was again on the trails of the Doode Beemde. Climbing out of the Dyle valley into Meerdael Forest I felt fatigue setting in and I was glad I was nearly home.

    The weather was fine and in the late afternoon I rode out for another hour of mountainbiking. Taking the Litespeed Obed again I started out in Meerdael Forest and made my way to Sint Joris Weert and the Doode Beemde. Passing the bridge where I fell two years ago and then hobbling along the trails in the nature reserve. Back into Sint Joris Weert meant climbing up to the Kluis and further onwards before I reached the Red Bloso. Overtaking another biker only to be left standing on the next climb. Hmmm, my legs are not exactly what they once were it seems. But I continued on my own rhythm and returned home along the Eleonore and Margrieten dreef, with another fine ride under my belt.

    After a days' rest I was ready for another mountainbike ride into Meerdael Forest . Again on the Litespeed Obed I set out along the perimeter of the forest on mostly large and easy trails. There were a little more heightmeters in todays' ride but I still was able to maintain a good speed, also given the fact that it had rained a bit yesterday and the trails weren't completely dry everywhere. But they were comfortable and my body held together.

    About time I got my ass on a bike and rode out. So I got on the Litespeed Obed and rode out into Meerdael Forest. Sticking to the big forest trails and carefully starting to see how my lower back and knees would stand up to the surprise of riding on a real bike instead of the Tacx.
    Things went quite well, I could feel the knees but the rest of my body seemed pretty pleased with the tension brought on by cycling through the wind, on real tracks and with the little and big bumps of the trails trough my tyres and front suspension. I had a real good time breathing the forest air deeply into my lungs and enjoying the cool breeze and the sunshine. I settled for an hour and could maintain a very good pace, even through the end.

    Time for another ride on the Tacx Satori. I finished with Stephen Kings' 'Doctor Sleep' today, so I might be looking at riding outside anytime soon. The legs felt Ok except for some pain in my knees which is due to my running sessions. I have put the running on hold for the moment, waiting for the knees to catch up.
    Afterwards I did a 30 minute stretching and Core Stabilization session.

    Did another 4K forest run yesterday afternoon. I am having some difficulty with my inner upper shins and it looks like I need some other shoes to run. I have been using Vivo Barefoot Breathro runners because I like their line of shoes and wear them everyday. But running with such minimalist sole protection looks too difficult and puts too much strain on areas where I do not want any strain. I have ordered some Nike Flyknit Air Max shoes that should offer some more protection. Let's hope they are better for my shins.
    Today I went for an hour on the Tacx Satori. Temperatures outside are going over 20 degrees C today but I want to finish Stephen Kings' 'Doctor Sleep' so I got on the Tacx and pedalled away while the adventures unfolded themselves. I had a good ride and my shins do not bother me whilst riding a bike so I feel lucky about that.
    Afterwards I did a 30 minute stretching and Core Stab session.

    Yesterday I had another forest run, a little more than half an hour alternating running and walking intervals.
    Today I go on the Tacx Satori for another hour of recovery. The legs were feeling good, notwithstanding the fact that the muscles used in the running were still hurting. But running and cycling muscles are not the same, so both sports are quite complimentary as far as the legs are concerned.
