Slowly But Surely

I'm still not riding a lot, mostly due to my busy schedule and a lingering aprehension about my left leg.

Yesterday I got out (for only the third time this month!!) and rode 25 miles, periodically at a fast pace or up a hill. The leg is coming along nicely, with far less pain and stiffness than before. What isn't good is my aerobic conditioning. Since I've been off the bike so much, I've lost a lot of my fitness, and hard efforts yesterday were made even harder by my heavy breathing.

I'd worry, but training for next season doesn't start until next month, so a couple weeks of good Zone 2 riding should get me back into decent shape. I've got lots of endurance riding ahead of me anyway, so I'm not worried in the least bit.
