Recovery is so important, but so hard to do sometimes. I planned a rest day today. It was a warm fall day and before I knew it Diane talked me into a ride. We did take it easy and it was short. I even declined to ride the hills with her. I still don't have my climbing legs back from Philly. We did about 15 miles at 16mph.
As I was cleaning the house I decided to try a weighted pullup. So I got a belt and my KB that's 12kg or 25lbs and was able to do one pullup with it hanging from me. Whew..it was hard.
