Howdy folks. I have recently started a weight and exercise regimen to take some lbs off. I will be 51 in a few months so this looks like the place for me. I am the proud owner of a 7 speed townie. I passed on the walmart specials and went to a bike shop and paid a little more but I am very pleased with the product. My regimen is a 10 mile bike ride and the next day a 3 mile walk and repeat. I try to average about 10 mph on the ride. I take off on sundays. I am working with my doc on this since I have some health issues also. He approves of the 10 - 3 .
Questions to all of you is this.
After a 10 mile day and then 3 miles walking, my legs feel like lead. When that happens should I take a day off to recharge or push through it ? I really am not sore, just very tired in the legs.
My goal is to do a 20 mile round trip on the bike by end of july and then take a 50 mile trip by end of october.
