Got out today for my first ride since at least Nov, maybe even Oct. All I can say, "GOD, I HURT!!"
Got out of the habit of riding every sunday am due to personal/relationship issues. Then was putting it off as I knew it was gonna hurt and boy was I right. Only did about 35miles on road and it was a complete killer. Never felt so pathetic in my life!!!!
However, it's done and need to get out on a regular basis to build back up again. Doing the Castle 100 ride in Kent in May, so need to get some miles in. Used to be able to ride 100 road miles in one hit without any specific training, whereas now I would struggle to do the London to Brighton.
Who else has let themselves slip to an (in all honesty) unacceptable level of fitness?? I have found that I was kidding myself that I wasn't that unfit. Now I need to rest!!!
