Update: Just finished ride number 4!!!
MY first ride in over 20 years was a rough 3 miles, and just finished ride #4, I went 6.6 miles and averaged 10.7mph after working a 12 hr shift on the job. I feel a lot better after this ride than the first one, other than terrible butt pain.
It has already got me thinking about a Brooks saddle, my question to all of you that have been through this is. Should I endeavor to persevere, with my saddle, and if so how long do I have to go through this until I know for sure my saddle will or will not work for me. Also I have always over done it with everything Ive ever done and Im wondering if I might be increasing my rides to quick, I am really excited to have discovered how much fun it is to ride, workout, and sweat, it's been a long time since I've done anything but sit on the couch and eat and feel miserable about myself so any help on how to pace my rides would be greatly appreciated. One other note I have never posted or blogged on any forum ever, and I want everyone on here to know what a blessing it is to read and be a part of a group that I can relate to, and can relate to me. Thanks
