getting fat and lazy

i havent ridden in nearly a week due to 1. me wanting to just take a little break ands 2. its been raining for days now! it seems like when im not riding i tend to eat very poorly. any tips on whether i should hop right back on the bike and bang out 25 miles or should i do a small 10 mile warm up ride and go up from there?

i <3 ben and jerry's

dude, 25 miles isn't that much work. And the weather here in Central Jersey shouldn't keep you off the bike much. I miss maybe 1-2 days all year due to weather (Ocean County). Buy a raincoat, not Ben and Jerrys.
