Rode in to work today for first time. Not as easy as a pm ride. Instead of going 15, I was more in the 10 mph range until after about 8 minutes into the ride. After about 25 minutes, I will looking for more things to unzip. Temp was about 40.
1. is it normal to have lower speeds on starting up in the morning?
2. how do you handle cool down with an am ride? Do you continue riding but the last 5 minutes or so just go slower?
Or are these things that pass as I get my conditioning back?
