I went on my bike last night as well - so completed a 20km hill ride in 38 mins with some pretty high HR numbers. And so - I woke up this morning and decided to take the day off training today as I wanted to be fit and healthy for work tomorrow - and I've had enough of not allowing myself to recover from illness properly.
So - an actual day of rest, on the day of rest! Brilliant. Its a taper week anyhow this week as next Sunday is a B category race, with the 10km off road race. I am pretty sure my knees still need resting - so I shall not complain about the extra rest.
