Due to the previous day's cycling in tough conditions, I took a day off to recover. Not a lot to report, as I was basically just resting my legs in Santiago, Panama.
Rest day in Santiago
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.
