Saturday 7th September 2019, Atsugi.
A much better day physically then yesterday. A rather longer distance and about the same climb. Could have managed a lot further today. Could I have managed a further 800m of climb? Don’t know but I’d have had a go at it.
Was yesterday the cumulative effect of 17 months on the road? The Japanese diet, temperature or humidity? Or possibly a combination of all of the above.
Anyway I don’t need to work this one out as tomorrow is my last day of cycling to get to Tokyo and THE END!
Today’s ride was wonderful for the first half, around Mount Fuji, although increasingly behind me, but then subsequently just an urban ride. I suspect that will be increasingly so as I head towards central Tokyo tomorrow.
