Windy and rainy so I decided to take the ride to nowhere. My quads were very sore when I first started out. I pushed the pace for a minute or so and then tried to settle into a good pace. The little pick up seemed to help. My legs felt pretty good after about 10 minutes or so.
The goal today was to see if I could go 90 minutes maintaining a cadence of at least 90. It was a nice sweat-fest pushing the pace, but in a good way. I still felt pretty good at the end of the initial ride, so I decided I could go for more. I did stop long enough to dry off and put on some dry clothes. I set the time for another 60 minutes.
I jumped right into a good cadence and continued pedaling. The first 30 minutes went by quickly and comfortably. The last 30 minutes was another story. I started getting little twinges here and there. A little stab in my quad. A little pang in my knee. But nothing serious. Just a sign that I wasn't going to be adding on to the ride more than this.
I am not quite back to my normal self just yet, but I felt like this was a another step in the right direction.
