Well I now have a few more rides since getting back, including 2 on the mountain bike for a change of pace, and I’m still not back to the speeds I was at before I left. Yesterday I did 37 miles at a 18mph average which is about 1mph slower than normal. When I got home I took a shower and took a 2 hour nap….NOT NORMAL. When I got up I almost fell down because my legs felt so weak, but as the evening went on they felt better. I’m going to go out and do another 35 miles today.
Never would have thought this ride would have done that to me, but I’m going to keep pushing on.
