Not There Yet
Today I did my first road bike ride since Aug. 5 and I was pretty uncomfortable. My lower back almost never complains, but it did today after about 20 miles. I rode a total of 30 miles and the shoulder held up reasonably well. But two weeks without upper body strengthening exercises have left me a little soft. For tomorrow I think I'll take the Giant FCR3 up to Eden on the Eisenbahn State Trail. I probably won't go back to the weight room until the beginning of September, but I think I can resume my ab crunches now. It's scary how quickly the hardness that comes from daily exercise can leave you when you stop. I want it back.
