Chrono des Nations

The season has been long. My last race of the season was Chrono des Nations in France. We flew from Basel to Nantes on Friday afternoon. On Saturday I rode the TT course three times. I did not feel good. My legs were tired, they were aching. That has been a feeling I have had often the last ten days. One day I felt good, the next days really tired. When the season is long I think it is normal. The body is just tired and does not recover so fast and well anymore.
I was hoping to have a good day on the race day. One night of good sleep would hopefully do wonders. I woke up, felt recovered and surprisingly good. I had breakfast and went for a short spin to wake up my body. My start was later in the afternoon.
A good warm up before the start and I knew I could ride a good race. I had power in my legs. Now it was just about being able to suffer for half an hour. I suffered and crossed the finish line completely exhausted. I was in second place and still 5 riders to come. I finished 5th. A good result.
Now I am hapy that the season is over. I need some time to reload my batteries.
