My legs feel like that camper. Maximum Destruction has begun, I just hope its not to little to late. I am on track for 800 miles on the bike this month, and I still think 1000 is possible. 45 Days till trans iowa! I am excited. Today was a day of rest after 130 miles last weekend, plus rides Monday and Tuesday. Sunday I rode with some fast guys, and they really showed me how much I've been slacking while riding alone. It was nice to have company during the 60+ rain ride. When I got home I stuffed my face and took a nap.
I feel like I'm doing the right things. My leg muscles hurt bad, but in a good way, not an injured way. I am planning a ride in Iowa for next weekend. I also have a lot of miles planned for Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday of this week. I like the idea of linking the rides together like that, it gives a small amount of time for healing but not enough to get the legs feeling 100% again. I want to keep them sore, I think that will be the best for 320 miles of gravel and dirt roads.
