First ride was 34 miles? For me that would put a hurting on me. Did you do any trainer time in the off-season?

yeah, I put a little trainer time. I mean, very little. Like 30 minutes in a month during the off-season.

my ass is a little sore. 3/4 the way, I could feel my thigh muscles getting tight. So, I got off the bike and walked for like 4 minutes. I lost 3 lbs after the ride was complete. I feel great though. I plan on riding again tomorrow, but only 22 miles round trip

I normally do a series of 10 milers to get my body used to being on the bike. Even if I feel great, I'll so a few extra of them to be sure. At that point I can start extending, or go faster.

yeah, your approach is more ideal than mine. But, I work full-time, so I don't have the motivation to get on the trainer. Maybe next year, I'll log more time on my KK2.0

I don't get on the trainer either, and also work. The shortened starts lets my body get used to being on the bike. It also sets me up for shortened commutes on days when my daughters fall sports schedule means I won't ride after work much during the week.

yeah, your schedule seems busier 'cause of your daughters, work, etc.. I have an 11 year old son, but he is not with me. He is in the Philippines. My off-season is short anyways. I ride in colder weather. If it is at least 36* outside and sunny, I'm riding.

I set my minimum at 40 degrees, and wind "not killer". If I was tougher I'd lower below 40.
