For the last 3 days I haven't ridden, I decided to let the bike sit and stay in the new pool. Kinda of enjoy the fruits of my (our) hard labor. Plus it feels good on my back and I like taking a break sometimes.
Believe me I love my time on the bikes and look forward to every ride. But I have found myself drifting more and more toward the fun side of cycling over the last few years. The longer I stay away from the racing side of things the more I find it just more fun to ride and play. Not just try to use every ride for a training session.
I am still in good shape and can cover as much ground as all my racer buddies but just a little slower. I like my pace!
