    NNC Club Edition aka...

    "D@mn, I'm slow."

    Met up with the local cycling club today for the first time. Well, I went to the meeting place. The club organizer was the only other person that showed. Nice guy. Didn't ride off and leave me like he easily could have but by the 3rd loop he was almost riding off and leaving me on the steeper hills despite not actually trying to. His easy pace became a wind-sucking pace for me. I survived it without needing CPR but I think I've been fooling myself about how much effort I've been putting into my solo rides. Riding with others is going to be good for me.

    No worries there. I was riding a lot up until last year. A change of schedule at work forced a change in my usual ride time and became an excuse to ride less followed by a lazy winter not doing much. I knew the result was loss of fitness and weight gain but I didn't realize the extent. I thought I'd been working pretty hard to remedy that situation the past 3 months. Apparently I haven't been working as hard as I thought I had. I won't be letting it happen again this year though. I'm spending this summer converting the rarely-used sunroom into a workout area for the long, cold winters we get. I already have a trainer and spin bike. I think I'm going to get rollers and I'm debating an elliptical just for variety.
