I feel for you bro. You should have been solid taking the end of December off to get lots of riding time.
I feel like I'm getting a sluggish start to the season, not in days riding but the quality of my riding. I don't remember last season so I don't know if this happened then too but I'm still sore the day following a few hours on this hill.
A few hours.
I used to bang out 8-12 hours last season, what the hell...
I think if I'm being real, my um..weight is hindering me this season. I'm up close to 20 pounds over last season and I was already 25-30 pounds heavy then.
Gonna have to do something about this and fast because I'm riding really poorly this season compared to what I expected. I get it's early but still..
