But it nonetheless left me with two thoughts:
1. Hey, it’s actually possible to achieve my full capacity while riding part time!
2. Rats, I have to ride every single week for two years.
See, since my wisdom teeth came out, I’ve gone a family vacation, come back, and been completely swamped at work. That means that for about the past three weeks, I have maybe six hours of riding time to report, and that’s it. Some weeks, that’s just how life is–riding just isn’t always a option.
So while that stinks, at least I know now I can be a weekend warrior and still maybe pull out some bike fitness. In some ways it provides hope; in others, it’s a little discouraging.
