I went a little almost three weeks without riding. I went on vacation and then we had a lot of bad weather when I got back home. I was really worried that not riding for so long was going to take it's toll.
The odd thing is after riding the past two days I feel much stornger than before. For the most part I had been riding every day for the past six months. I did miss a few days here and there.
I know that muscles need time to repair. Is it possible... that I was riding so much that my muscles never really had the proper time needed to build up. Yesterday I averaged 17 mph on a stretch that I usually average about 13. Later in the day I hit a few hills that usually give me a little problem and I felt stronger than ever.
