Yes...Other than fact I love the sensation of taking long rides; I recall how quickly I lost fitness in my legs after my injury in the Spring of last year..
Basically, two months, I should not have riden at all..I did disobey my doctor after about one month and initially rode on my trainer.. A little later, mild rides close to home..I take that back..Considering the time HMO's take to approve surgery and other delays, I should have been off my bike four months..I did not. But, probably - No serious riding for four months..I was besides myself with boredom.
Nothing serious...My legs got flabby pronto...I hate that...
I can't run...Not a gym person...Find gym equiptment boring.
Just is not the same as riding the crest of a favorite ridge.. Guess, if I value my fitness for touring, I must get over this...But, biking is my thing...Can you imagine the shame - worse than flabby flesh ozzing from your hamstrings..
Other factors that make you fanatic about getting out X number of times per week...?
Guess that is mine. If I don't get in those X number of times per week, I am pretty grumpy.
