Definetely some soreness in my old plantar's foot, related to pushing too hard on the long ride on saturday. i need to realize and accept that i am doing an endurance event, and that i am not going to be able to keep up with people that have been training year-around and that are more short-distance triathletes. other than that, it was a good and very tiring first week.
