Something to keep in mind.
True, but the OP is a long way off from that. At his age, mid-30s, it would take about six months of methodical training to get up to that level of fitness. At my age and physical condition it took two years.

I'm just beginning to consider trying time trials again, and I'd need to quit taking many supplements I use now. And check my lab results to see how my meds for thyroid, bone loss, etc., are affecting my levels. I suspect everything is within the low normal range, but I'm deliberately trying to boost my testosterone without resorting to anything extreme. Probably a waste of time and money, but some stuff we gotta try for ourselves.

Mostly I just don't want to be the slowpoke holding up every group ride. Finally made some progress toward that this year. For now my only competition is the calendar and nobody wins that game.
