I have been going on rides pretty much ever week several times the highest mileage I have put in lately is about 4 miles. Yesterday I went on a 7.46 mile ride. It killed me big time. I went with Blaze he peddles a bit and then sails off . Behind him you find me peddling like a mad woman. I usually find a nice stride and try to keep. Yesterday my goal was to keep up. I didn’t catch up to him but I sure as hell tried. I kept him just a few feet ahead of me. I even broke out the pain killer I even had to dust off the container and check the date to make sure it was still safe to take. Today I’ll do a shorter ride and take tomorrow off from riding. It is amazing how much I enjoy this even when I am trying to catch up with Blaze. I need to find a good protien bar cause I sometimes come home with the screaming meanies.
