I am trying and have been trying all year to lose weight and get back in shape. In January I stepped on the scale and realized I had ballooned up to 295, my heaviest ever. I am now back down to 258 - 261 depending on when I weigh myself. I've been riding a lot, and stepping it up a lot more recently. I took my first 35 mile ride the other day with some serious hill climbs in there and rode another 20 during the day running errands and with the kids. I also ride to work everyday, 14 mile roundtrip, that has some big hills also. My questions are :
Am I hurting myself riding everyday?
Is it ok to take an easy ride with the wife and kids if I am taking a day off?
Should I ride as hard as I can everyday to work or take a couple days and just take my time?
Thanks in advance for any advice anyone could give me.
