The first long ride of the season was Saturday. Six of us took off from U City and rode around Mid County and out west. My total for the day was 33.5 miles, though a few others rode more like 50 and 60 miles.

Must ride more. Hilly = very slow right now.

There are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening rides as well as sponsored weekend rides (this one Saturday was a coworker ride). No softball this summer, so over the course of the next few months, I should lessen hill hell into hill torture.

You're a badass. The Good Doctor took me on a bike ride once and I almost died. We rode to the end of the drive way and back.

Anyway, I'm starting back to speedwork now myself and it's a killer.

Always tough trying to get back into the season.

Good luck!

Sunday was my first big day. 55 miles. Unfortunately, now my butt is so sore I can't ride sitting down for more than a few minutes straight. This happens to me at the start of every season, but I never seem to learn.

Don't forget to post more leg pictures as the season progresses ;-)
