On the weekend I went for my first proper ride in so long; in fact, I don't remember the last time I rode a bike more than 20kms. A cruisy roll along the Yarra Trails towards Eltham was all I needed. 70kms done and I was shattered. It's at this time of the year I wonder how I'll ever get fit again. I promise, when I get to March I'm not stopping. No amount of exercise science can make me believe my body needs rest each year if it means starting from scratch again like this!
