Recovery...

...but not from some fab ride. Recovery from the Flu From Hell. Today was my first day back on a bike since getting sick! I loved being out there, though I felt weak and feeble and had fits of coughing. I took it easy riding just shy of 16 miles and averaging 14mph overall. It was my first road bike ride since last fall as I spent the winter using the 'cross bike.

A few days ago, Jeff and I signed up for The Flattest Century in the East, so we have an event in September to look forward to. It was fun last year! Sign up for non-NBW members opens May 1st.

I'm so psyched you were able finally to get out there again!!! Take it easy - ramp up slowly - though it's going to be tough with the warm weather forecast for tomorrow.

Thanks for the reminder re May 1 and TFCE - looking for a paceline companion?

Glad that you are back out on your bike -- you'll be back at your quick pace in no time.
