Well.....I decided I had enough of running the other day, so I got back on the bike today. It felt good....but also, well....weird.
Cardio-wise, I'm actually in decent shape. Was pretty surprised about that. Power-wise, I'm ok....actually, seating climbing I felt more powerful, but endurance-wise I'm kinda lacking. I'm also 10 pounds heavier than last summer right now which sucks, but that should come off in a few months so I'm not real worried about it.
My cadence has gone down the crapper. I felt like I was "spinning", and maybe turning like 80 rpm. Ugh. Gotta work on that....guess my legs kind of got used to a running cadence.
Speed-wise, I'm doing around how I figured. Endurance is lacking a bit, but I expected that.
So, this looks to be another "build" year.....maybe do some races in late summer/early fall and see how that goes, as I don't feel like spending $60 for nothing. Get some century rides in maybe in July/August, etc.
Now.....just have to make sure I don't get another lump down there. Turns out it was a mass of scar tissue that built up into a knot right where my "sitbone" sits on the seat. Guess it was from riding. I have it on the other side, but not anywhere near as bad. Riding today, it felt like someone cut a piece of my ass out, and I had less padding there. The first half of the ride was kinda uncomfortable, but by the end I felt pretty normal.
Sooo.....we'll see. Time to start racking the miles up once again.
