Not ridden for 7 months - feels tough!
After 7 months out of the seat i finally got back on to the road. Wow - those same gradients felt hard! I had to get off the bike and walk half way up the hill! It wasn't even a steep hill just a long winding one. I did have a different bike this time round so maybe that had some effect as i wasn't used to it.Plus i've added 8 pounds to my weight which hasn't helped. Thats one thing i've noticed is that if i don't ride and eat well the fat comes back quick! Is this normal? How long will it take me to get back into the rhythm?
