Only been at it seriously for a week and some change - but I find it so frustrating right now. I can only bike like 3.5 miles right now. That is only at about 10 mph on dead flat roads.
I miss the days when I was younger and doing 40+ miles with my dad on hilly terrain.
I am out there every day and sometimes 2 times a day just going around the block. Wife is concerned I am pushing it to much but other than my left shoulder hurting a bit (not bad) I feel great. Even if I am out there at 5 pm in 100 degree Houston temp I am loving it. But it is just so frustrating only being able to bike for like 20 minutes at a time before I feel like I am going to fall over and die. lol
I realize I am not 20 any more - I am 36 and weigh 362lbs. I do realize it will take time. But my mind and my spirit are frustrated because the body can't keep up.
So how far did you start with? How long did it take for you to get to a point of loading up a couple bottles and hitting the road/trail for hours at a time?
A side question - Do you feel biking this distance EVERY day and sometimes 2 times a day is too much? Should I be scaling it down?
