Took a ride yesterday

Nothing major, just 13 miles avoiding any of the bigger bumps we have going North and South in town.
Didn't push too hard... kept the gears a little lower than normal and my cadence smooth and high.
Felt great to be pushing the pedals again. Came home painfree and with no serious after effects.
Legs hurt a little... it's amazing how fast fitness and strength can begin to fade at *our* age
Still got a some recovery ahead of me but I feel better about now.

Meanwhile, I've started my PT.. hard to believe how much you can feel exercises that look so light and simple
I guess these guys know what they're doing.

Just getting back to road riding and it hurts after the "Unreal" cycling of a spinning bike. May have overdone the ride today but it is a "Good" hurt.

Keep the rides coming and you will soon be back on those local hills that will really let you know what exercise is.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
