Back in the saddle…again

Seems I’m a bit of a cycling wimp. I’ve been fighting off a cold and, for numerous other reasons, didn’t cycle to work at the start of the week. But back at it today.

I felt really sluggish but put in a fantastic time for my trip to work. Proof that I really am getting a much higher base-level of fitness and strength.

This afternoon I did 16 miles on my way home in under an hour, including a big hill. I was pretty pleased. Knees mostly OK but my back was aching in a strange way. Alright now though.
