Elements were on my side, but for some reason I just couldn’t get into the zone.
During the AM it was warm-ish, but there was a vail of cloud blocking the sun. This is the time I saw the most beautiful scenery of the day.
Legs felt good and pace was great. However after my first stop at around 50km it started to go downhill. I didn’t exactly feel weak, but just somehow something was missing. I tried to fix the situation with ice cream, which did seem to help, but only partly.
I again failed a few times regarding my route, where I ended at highways you cannot pass with a bicycle. After consulting Google I was able to move forward and knew the overall direction was right.
Tomorrow will be 170-180km, but I have decided to make it the final day and ride all the way home. My body tells me it is time to rest.
