    getting back into shape

    I have been out of riding for a little over a month now, due to being sick for a week(not even being able to walk). I went to the doctor and had an emergency appendectomy. That put me out for about six weeks. Today the good news is that I got a new bike. A caad9 5. But down to business. I went out on a medium paced ride and felt really good until I got to one of the climbs. Climbs in central Indiana tend to be not very long but very steep. I usually fly up this hill but I could not get my legs to get me up. What is the quickest way to get the climbing legs back in shape? This is quite disappointing because I was planning on doing my first race this fall, but now I will probably be waiting until next spring. Thanks in advance.

    You should fly up that hill, after all, when they took the appendix you lost some weight. Think positive.
    It's not how many miles you ride, but how hard you ride them. Time trials aren't races.
