I'm 2 months behind you. I took my first trainer ride today. I bet it is over a year since I've been on a bike. Last summer was dedicated to backpacking.
When I last used the trainer, I was able to hold 16 mph for a whole hour. That wasted me, but I could do it.
Today I was under 12 mph and I had to stop after 50 minutes. My knees were shaking when I got off the bike. Being a clyde is bad, but a retired clyde is twice as bad.
What prompted this urge to get fit again was being unable to ski a whole day a couple weeks ago. Knees shaking by 11:00 am. Time to quit before I hurt myself, but also a strong message to get back in shape.
