Recovery Ride

by on April 9, 2013

Monday morning the temperature was in the low 50’s and with that kind of weather I just had to ride.  I set out for an easy spin with the 5:45 gang on “Mosey Monday” and enjoyed their company until the hills on Old County Road.  Scott C (who also rode the Flèche) and I suddenly noticed there was no strength in the legs, and we were dropped … quickly.  We rode the rest of the ride together telling stories.  I stayed in the small chain ring and tried to spin easy.  It wasn’t until I got home that I realized that we had ridden the trail all the way back from the southern end.

I had every intention of going out this morning for another easy spin, but even with temperatures in the upper 60’s, I couldn’t drag myself out of bed.  My legs ached all night and I didn’t sleep well.  I’ll take today as a day of rest and get back out there tomorrow.

This Ride: 18.8 miles
Month: 335 miles
2013: 1643.6 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 21,416.5 miles
