Last night I went out for a group ride w/ the local "C+" group (speeds of around 15mph avg.) I haven't been getting alot of miles in lately, so I didn't want to push it. Had a nice easy 1st 2/3 of the ride but I just felt like I was being held back. It was getting dark and I knew that I had to start pushing it to get home before it got too dark. Let the ride leader know, and off I went. (I have 10 miles to go to my house past the finish of the group ride-hence my concern.) I flew. Couldn't believe how strong I felt. Avg before this was around 15mph. Got home and it was 17. I guess that "base" conditioning that I've had this summer (up to about 3 weeks ago, I'd been having my highest mileage since I started riding again) hasn't left me. Got home felt great. Love that endorphine rush!
The nice easy warmup probably helped a lot too. nmMB1
