Today was a very warm day for February in Southeast Ohio, but I wasn’t able to get out for a ride due to parenting responsibilities. However, the newly insulated garage was a great place to ride with Jack and Kate from Lost. The 42 minute episode was ideal entertainment for the ride to nowhere on the trainer.
It’s been a long winter. I haven’t ridden in something like six months. So I binged a little on my first ride, and now my right knee hurts a bit. It’s likely a fit or cleat issue or a too much too soon issue. I was only going to do 15 or 20 miles, but I was tempted to do more. Regardless of the slight discomfort, it was awesome to get out. It was chilly at 40 degrees and windy, but a few layers were enough. I ran into Dave on the way back, and riding with him was nice.
Ride details and route :I rode with MapMyRide! Distance: 29.38mi, time: 01:59:20, pace: 4:04min/mi, speed: 14.77mi/h.
Nice sunny, windy ride at lunch yesterday. Rode out to Eclipse and back, and extended it another two miles by looping through South Green. I was going tos ride today, but I've got a tinge (for lack of a better description) down my right hip and into my knee. I had the same pain yesterday, but I didn't feel it on the bike. Despite being okay yesterday, I figured it best to rest today. It's supposed to be sunny on Friday, so perhaps I can get a lunch ride in then.
