But in the end we were victorious!
After my nearly month long absence from cycling I expected some pain. I mostly expected leg issues and a reduction in cardio. The pace was less then I
You can read in Part I of my beginners guide to biking that when you start biking you butt will hurt for at least a month no matter what you do. Apparently you can lose that toughness in about a month as well. I forgot what it was like to be afraid of sitting down!
The other surprising toughness I lost was my neck. I am back to having the neck pain all the way into my mid back again.
Hopefully after a couple weeks of being back in the saddle these beginner pains will go away and I can go back to not thinking about them. Ever again.
All this has taught me that a break isn't worth it! Next time I am getting on my bike at least once a week!
