No riding at all for two weeks! No trainer, no commuting. Nada!
Went out today around midday to try and jumpstart this winter's riding. Did 25 miles up Round Swamp Rd. plus the first hill of the LIE. Temperature was 36F. All-in-all a good ride. Mostly easy spinning and the one big hill at the LIE. Legs didn't feel all that bad. I think they will come back quickly if I can string a few days or riding together. Goal for the rest of the winter will be not to take off more than one day of riding in a row. That said, I'll probably try for another 25er tomorrow morning.
Noticed that it took 7 or 8 miles for breathing and aerobics to feel comfortable. I think it will take longer to get lungs back. Need some long rides to do that.
