The roller coaster started after a crash in Ardeche. This crash lead to having to pull out of the stage race due calf pain, being off the bike for 4 days and later still having pain. I was starting to panic. World's were a week and a half away. I was hurting and unable to ride longer than an hour.
Then I received 2 excellent things; Chocolate chip cookies from Josh, and a reminder that there is such a thing as IB Profen. Open mouth, take bite of cookie and swallow little white pill. My calf was instantly better.
I stared a stage race on Tuesday (Tuscana) and have gotten better and better each day (phew!).
I ended today with a great ride and the most aggressive rider jersey.
Bring on World's!!!
