I Almost Quit On My Training Ride...
I went on a short 20 mile ride today with a small climb heading up to Mt. Baldy, but cutting off at Padua, which is almost half way up to Mt. Baldy. Getting to that climb is not an easy ride, because it's mostly all false flat, so there's a bit of pushing in there. Remember, I haven't trained on my bike regularly for over a year, so I lost a lot of my strength and conditioning on the bike. If you're a cyclist, you know what that's like. Being off the bike for a week is like not going to the gym for 3 months! At the bottom of the climb, it gets steep and I started hurting bad and wanted to turn around and head back... that's what this short 1 minute video is about. Enjoy... =) BTW - Sorry for so much movement on the video.
