I got out today for a short (16-mile) ride today. My head was just not into the ride. I started slow, stayed slow, and finished slow. Knees were bothering me a bit. My legs are tired. Been riding a lot of days here recently. No big mileage totals, but 8 or 9 days of 15 to 20 miles a day are apparently taking a toll on my body. I’m not in my 20’s anymore. Dammit.
Might be time to pull back a bit and rest or just tone down the rides I’m doing.
I still love ANY bike ride I get to do, but today’s was just “weird.”
