I think I took too much time off the bike. I feel like I’ve lost a lot of fitness – but I really needed the time off.
My fitness is coming back, slowly, but it’s coming back. Surprisingly after Sunday’s spin I wasn’t wiped out. I managed to make it through the remainder of the day without the aid of a nap.
Tonight my run was actually enjoyable. It was still hard and I put in a good effort, but it felt good, or as good as it can.
Spring is a mere 8 weeks away. Though sometimes it takes a bit longer to arrive here in Maine. I’ll be back on the road soon (hopefully in March) and it’s time for some significant fitness building in preparation.
