Today was the second day in a row I made it out to ride. Yesterday the weather was too nice to not ride, so I got in 22 miles and felt good.
Today was supposed to be a ride with a new acquaintance. She had to cancel this morning so I went out alone again. The route was more difficult because the hills were steeper and there were more of them. So my average went down but I still had a great day with 20 miles.
I did notice it was harder to climb the hills and I took more breaks than I had to when I was in shape last year. This just means I have more work to do.
