    Burning legs reminds me to pull them out of the fire

    Im not sure there is advice to give here, but someday I hope to remember to do stuff before my legs start burning rather than after.

    My legs will start to burn and then I remember to relax them, pedal through, use both legs equally, and breath.

    The funny thing is, I relax and remember to pedal circles and the burning stops as I actually start going faster.

    I'll be happy when I don't have to think about it so much.

    It's getting better though. 30 days ago I rode 10 miles at 12mph and was dead. Today I rode 16 miles at 15 mph and was able to power up that last hill of the ride without crying.

    It keeps getting better.

    I know you are working hard at it and also losing weight. I am also always thinking of things to tweak as I ride. Can't believe how much improvement I've seen since I started riding more seriously. Can't believe it's only been since April.

    The only way you get that fat off is to eat less and exercise more.
