Maybe it's time to bring out the Jensie.

Seriously though, you've been complaining about them almost the whole trip - something wrong perhaps? Q factor/bike fit? Or just old age?

I wasn't the only one. Joel had sore legs after yesterday. It's a WOC - there's a natural tendency to go a lot harder and it was particularly hilly yesterday. Plus the time I did would put it into the range of a long distance event in Aus.

This is WOC. Everything will get sore. It's normal.

But it hasn't just been at WOC. This entry complains of tired calves, hammy and quads, and several other posts throughout the trip have mentioned 'smashed legs'. Seems like a pattern. I'm not being critical or trying to stir, just think it isn't the invincible tRicky that we all know and love.

Yeah well that was two days of sprints in succession, also, coincidentally, at a WOC (albeit the Masters variety) ;-)

Don't most people's legs hurt, most of the time?
