A big day for me as I did over 4,000′ of climbing and put in 40 miles today on the road bike, more than I have done in a year. It was a steady pace climb and my body held up well. It looks like, no feels like that I am slowly rounding into decent cycling fitness again. Mind you that I am not ready to throw down at a race by any means. What I am saying is that I am not afraid of screwing up my back as I feel I better in tune with my body and its limits. I realize that as you age your body cannot do what it did twenty years ago yet it can perform at a high-level within parameters that you are comfortable with.
