Is there some kind of rule for building up your range on a bike? Like there is for
running? I seem to recall a rule of thumb where you extend yourself 10% a week or something like that.
Well, I just blasted right past that and my legs are paying the price. I've done 43 miles recently and thought it would be boring to do the same route, so I came back a different way. Really different. 30 more miles different.
I don't think I ate enough and I definitely didn't drink enough and my legs are en fuego right now. I think I even undid all the good my chiropractor did yesterday, my neck's stiff, I have a headache, my shoulders are sore and did I mention my legs?
I guess that means I'm not quite ready to do 100 yet. :D
Interestingly, I had plenty of gas in the tank until about 5 miles from home, and then about 1 miles from home I think I experienced the dreaded bonk. I had to walk up that last hill to get to my house.
There were roughly 42,000 bikers out today down by the beach, it was a gorgeous day.
