Tired legs don't like cycling

stats of the week: run 18km, cycled 136km

Not surprisingly my this year's fifth Maratona dles Dolomites was my slowest one. On the 106K course summing up 3100 vertical meters I was 4 minutes behind 2009. The cold conditions were no excuse. My low performance obviously was induced by a lack of cycling training and sort of fatigue after two marathons and the ultra race just 4 weeks ago.

However I still hope to do better next Sunday when attending my 5th L'etape du Tour which will be the same as the 20th etape of the professional cyclists.
