Pentlands with Felix and Robbie. Sunny and not windy but really quite nippy with some little bits of snow and ice around. Hands and feet were quite cold, L foot took about half an hour to fully thaw afterwards. Still a highly enjoyable ride though.
3 x 10 SL calf raises at ~4pm, got tiny bits of pain on 2 reps of the middle set but otherwise pain free. Then 3 x 1min isometrics at ~8pm, all good.
Couple laps of KF in the sunshine, calves still tight but not horrendous. Achilles felt ok coming back up the steps but then a few feels back across the meadows so just stopped at 45 rather than the planned 50-60. Hopefully all good but being cautious.
Few calf raises but got a tiny bit of pain on a couple so then 2 x 1min isometrics which were fine. Tight calves aren't good for it so yeah pretty tricky to juggle the rebuild, amazing how weak all the muscles get in 2-3 weeks, even with keeping s+c and doing calf raises and stuff.
Seat3, sunny but freezing cold and with a howling NW wind so properly wrapped up. Beat my PB up the climb on each of the 3 laps, but the descents were pretty grim and was happy to stop at 3. Also 4 x 1min isometrics at about 9am feeling fine.
