It’s been a while since I posted, I intended to do something a little more regularly but unfortunately I’ve been preoccupied with health problems for much longer than expected.
Since around March my power values haven’t been increasing the way I was expecting them to.
I didn’t panic though, I knew I was behind and that my form might come a little later than usual because of an interrupted winter.
In the Tour of Greece however my legs were very empty and I was physically unable to push hard enough to get out of breath, my legs felt like jelly and it was time to admit to myself that something was wrong.
I saw the race doctor before the start of the fourth stage, he told me I was anaemic (low iron).
