There was absolutely no chance of me going anywhere today. My legs were stiff, the veins were sticking out all zig-zaggy over my temples, and the bike still had its puncture. At about 10.00 i started to feel physically a little better, just that its a bit late to start cycling at that time. Instead, i fed and watered myself, repaired the puncture and generally took it easy. In a way, this may work to my advantage, as this gives me a projected entry into Panama City for Sunday, when i hope the legendarily crazy traffic will be a touch quieter.
