TFN Training Ride #2

Route:

Redwoods-ECity-Gottigere-Bannerghata NP-Jigani-Anekal-Chandapura Circle – Vakil Satellite Township – left to Huskur – Hosa Road – Sarjapura Road – Redwoods (about 77kms in all)

Started in the rain – left knee hurt by E-City already. Carried on with an eye of returning after meeting guys at Gottigere – carried on to the NP anyway – and then to Jigani.

Knee felt much worse between Jigani-Anekal and I dropped pace. A few stretches, slow riding and grimacing helped manage it.

Abhi and Ram took off to Pearl Valley while Jas and I went towards Hosur Road – walked a little in between, and felt better after some rest and tea/cake – rode much better after the Chandapura crossing and only after a bit of off-roading did I feel a huge stab in the knee, completely stopped, walked a little, and then the knee felt much better than it had all morning! The right knee – probably overloaded through the ride – ached a little by now – but an easy few kms saw me home.

Updated the log with takeaways etc.

Feel unsure about the TFN even now – but the last few kms felt better and gave me some hope.
