Thus far this week I have completed two 30 mile rides which is rather good for my experience in cycling. My problem (if it is a problem) is that I have a difficult time for the first 10 miles or so - feel like I am just out of gas - legs burning (spinning at 80 or better). Just about the time I think I have given all I can I start to feel strong - soreness and fatigue go away and it continues to get better as the ride progresses. Both Monday and today - by mile 25 I was ready for more while the others were ready to head to the house.
I want to feel that way throughout - I am stretching, but possibly not as well as I should. Appreciate your comments and advice..
