Haven't done much stretching, but have been off the saddle for over 2 weeks now. I decided to skip the event, it didn't make much sense and it wasn't worth it anyway. 200 kms in not exactly the most beautiful part of the island... it costed me a discussion with lots of drama though.
I hope that some stretching and yoga and not very tough rides will make my ankle and tendon strong. Some days that area feels funny, but I can't say if it's jut tiredness, getting old, or too much thinking.
