Ha , first day I didn't get in till a bit before lunch . Unfortunately on the 3rd day got quite a bit of rain , not quite as fun in the tight stuff . For me not been on a bike for close to 6 months , this was good for me .

Re: 4 days and 1000 miles of pure bliss

Should still be able to do more than 250 of them. We did more than 250 when we were riding in the Alps and Dolomites. But I guess not if you start after lunch.
