At a bit of a loss as to what to do really. Saturday I did a painful 30 minutes on the road bike. I pretty much wrote off NPS 2. Then Monday I hopped on the turbo trainer for 50 minutes doing a 10 minutes at half resistance, 10 at full and the leg felt pretty much spot on. Fitness-wise I was not too bad - I have lost a fair bit but am pretty sure I could get it back quickly. I even weighed myself to find I only put on a kilo (there was some comfort eating over the past couple of weeks), so as of yesterday evening I was planning on doing the race.
However today I'm not sure. I cycled into work and about half way their the pain at the top of my calf kicked off again and remained all day. Cycling home was painful also. The thing is, its not slowing me down, it just hurts like hell. So I'm wondering if its worth doing the race with the aide of a couple of Neurofen plus, or am I just kidding myself? I won't make my mind up till Sunday and will skip the pre-ride Saturday also.
