It's been a cold winter.  My last ride was in early December, so it's been almost 3 months.  I haven't done much in the way of exercise during that time.  Plus a month driving to and around the southwest of the the US.  So it was with some trepidation that I took up Tony's offer of a ride.  He, of course, has been riding most of the winter and is in much better shape than me.  But I didn't realize just how low my fitness has dropped.  I expect I say the same thing every year at this time, but as I get into my late 60's it must be getting worse.  So we did the shortest loop up by Mt. Doug and that was more than enough.  Too much up.  When I got home I could barely walk up the stairs from the basement.


Well spring is springing so I have no excuses.  More cycling and golf should get the legs back to some sort of fitness.
