Mondays Used to be “Mosey”

by on February 27, 2012

This Ride: 19 miles
Month: 185.9 miles
2012: 274.6 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 14109.3 miles

The amount of fitness and leg strength I lost to my six weeks off the bike sucks … plain and simple, it sucks.

I’m doing my best to keep up on a “Mosey Monday”, avoid the hill on Old County Road (as much for my foot as my reduced fitness level), and still the only reason I’m not dropped is because the guys are taking pity on me.  A reasonable pace has me breathing hard and my heart rate spiking.  I know it will come back, but I like rides that maintain my fitness level better than I like rides that work at increasing my fitness level.  But I’ve got to do it.  I’m quite a ways away from being able to do a 200k, and less than 2 months to the 360k ride.  I’ll keep plugging along.

No, I'm not slacking.
