Towards evening it appeared that the sun was going to make an attempt to show itself for a few moments just before dark. I heaved my lazy butt off of the couch at halftime and took to the street for a short fitness ride. I figure I’m so behind that I more or less need to start over: keep down the pace and the distance, let the legs and lungs re-adapt, and build up some toughness around the saddle contact points.
Still my legs and my crotch are a little sore today, but I’m not giving up. I’m going for a brisk walk at lunchtime, and hopefully a short ride after dark.
