Too much of a good thing is bad
To Old Upper Thomson Road, 28 km. I'm back on slicks again, with a new Panaracer Pasela tyre. Having cycled with heavy fat tyres for months, today's ride feels so different. With less effort, acceleration and speed is faster. But I reckon that if I hadn't trained with my fat tyres and heavier shoes, I wouldn't be as speedy. Maybe that's what the saying means: "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger". And maybe I shouldn't complain so much about life as a working stiff ...
