I went this past Sunday for the first time this year. Yeah, I was hurting after the first few climbs, but after a few breaks, and some steadier sections, my body finally figured out it wasn't over, and I felt better. Of course by the end my thighs were cramping, but I think that was more because my water pack leaked all the water out and I didn't have any for the last 3/4 of the ride. Just come out. We'll takee it easy. Trust me, I want to take it easy, and I have to take it easy.
