I have since healed my legs, and ramped up running again. I feel SLOW. Turtle pace slow. It has made my riding feel SLOW as well. If turtles rode bikes, they might beat me. It has made me grumpy on multiple occasions. But I have decided to follow the plan, stick with it, and embrace my turtle speed, trusting that fitness will return.
One of several flats on Sunday's turtle-pace ride.
(Note - the guys rode fine, Charisa rode at Turtle pace).
Very far from Alaska (thankfully!)
