Just started cycling. Abs are killing me!
Today was the first day my buddy and I added cycling to our exercise routine. We normally work out for an hour, sometimes a shade longer. Today we rode 45 minutes, and I spent a few minutes getting accustomed to my new 18 speed after he left. Before today I was strictly coaster brakes and/or IGH.
I'm a little sore all over, the good level of sore I expect to have for a few days after starting a new routine. Then there are my abs. I feel like I've been extra rounds with Mr. Balboa. Does this sound normal, or the result of bad form/posture? Is there any particular stretching I can do to lessen this pain? And is it ok to ride again tomorrow, or should I wait a day or three? My past experience with soreness is that if I tough through it the first week, it subsides.
