My weekend starts on Thursday afternoon. Did a group ride 27.5 miles with 1700 feet of ascent. Saturday did a local loop, four laps total 26 miles and 3018 feet of ascent. This is the first time I have ascended more than 3000 feet in one ride. Came close several times and have done it many times on Zwift. Sunday got rained out only 12 miles 1300 feet of ascent. For the weekend 65 road miles, 6000 feet of ascent.

My week beginning Monday ending Sunday: 93 total road miles, 9100 feet of ascent. Today as I write this I am to be blunt, sore. This time last year I could do a metric century and did one on the flats but I couldn't ride to the end of my street 0.6 miles 6+% grade. I feel that I have come a long way in this hobby. The sole reason why I use SPD pedals and shoes is I expected as a routine to walk up hills when I first started back riding.
