Wednesday: 56 mile bike; abs

Achilles has been throbbing in pain all day. And it kept me up last night as well. Not exactly sure how I hurt it or if it is even related to training as I barely ran last week and it randomly starting hurting after having not run for 3 days. Hopefully, it will go away soon, but no running for at least a couple days.

Bike 56 miles. FL: 2:35:33; 219w; 80rpm (w/90min@230-260w; 65-75rpm). Hardest I have ridden so far this year. Felt very easy. Am very happy with where my fitness is. I am way ahead of where I was at the same point in time last year.
