Today's ride was anything but the norm of what is usually a calm and relaxing Sunday ride.

Started off at 6:50am, met up with Domenic, Brandon and Co and we (I) started the cycle. 

It was extremely windy. 37 - 40km/h wind to be exact. And when you're on a bike, the winds makes a huge difference on how much you can push. Which is a good thing because it'll make you stronger in the long run but it was just a bit too much for me for this week.

Anyway, we cycled on and went on to do some hills - Dwejra, Zebbug, Marsalforn to Xaghra and Xatt straight to Nadur. At this point, my energy levels had depleted almost completely but we were going to do some straights so I decided to stick on! 

Unknowingly, I had forgotten that the wind is at it's peak when you're heading dead on straight towards it....I had enough energy to do just 1 lap of Qala to Xewkija & back and off I went to home!

My legs still feel like expired jelly.

Glorious Recovery Days ahead!
