But it's an excellent question: how we know when we're pushing it too hard? How do we know when we're just dogging it?

At our age it might be hard to tell. It's very difficult for me to judge as I have nonsyndromic chronic fatigue, and am equally tired from a 50 mile ride as I am from walking around the block.

Keep in mind that for every 50+er who qualifies for the TdF after three months of cycling, there are 10-20 of us who are thrilled to be able to ride 30 miles at 14 MPH after 3 years.
