I am updating my blog about 10 days after this actual day, and I cannot for the life of me remember a single thing about it. I haven’t got any notes written in my log apart from the mileage info, and the following info:

Start ride: 0720
Finish ride: 1620
Weather: Dry, hot, overcast
Physical condition: BAD

Also, I have a section where I write what I ate during the day. In the section for lunch, I have written NONE.

Another painful day.

It goes without saying…I have no photos from this day’s skating.

EDIT: So I have finally recalled something about this day. I remember sneaking onto the expressway for a bit because the small provincial roads were getting too rough.

Sneaking onto the expressway near Chaowu, Anhui Province, China

I also remember counting up the remaining kilometers to go till Shanghai, and writing them on my shoe. 421km.
