I know I'm always sniveling about getting old but sometimes when I climb I feel pretty good as if I could get back to where I was years ago. Yesterday I did an out and back of 50ish miles with about 5000 feet of climbing. It was hard but I didn't feel like I couldn't make it and I didn't cramp or have stomach issues. In the past, the last time maybe 8 years ago, I've done a ride starting at the same place but 100 miles with 10,000 feet of climbing. I couldn't imagine doing that century now.
