Turns out that good cycling fitness doesn't translate at all to running. Just wanted to get my heart pumping a bit, and now some of my thigh muscles are close to being non-functional, after not even 5km of slow jogging: https://www.strava.com/activities/1831523082
Just realized that the UCI mountain bike (xco) world cup is happening around me in Stellenbosch this weekend. Already saw a national champ wizz past the coffee shop, and a BMC team van just pulled out of a parking lot on the other side.
Current Gran Canaria cycling status: doing a group ride up to the mountains early in the morning tomorrow, but I'm the sucker who has to add 17km with 250m elevation both before and after the actual ride to even get to the meeting point and home. I call it extra homework.
