Back on the bike.

Posted Sun Feb 03, 2008, 17:13 PM by Tracy | |

I’m ashamed to say I have not been on my bike since my black belt test. It’s been cold/wet/no fenders/front stem loose/tires low on air. The last three have been taken care of, at least.

Today I took a short ride in preparation for Worst Day of the Year Ride, in part to gauge my fitness level (sucks) and to get an idea of how much clothes I should wear.

My cardio is okay, but my legs, ouch. The one day a week I’ve managed to get to the gym ain’t cutting it. Especially that muscle on the inside of my right thigh. Part of the problem, I think, is my rain pants are a little tight. They are made by Craft. I like their gear, but their sizes run small. I know I wear large, I readily admit that. But when large and even extra large are too tight, that ain’t right.
