I’m losing the weight, which is increasing my average speed on flat and slightly uphill sections, but I’m still getting winded going up the bigger hills.
As a reminder; call out your passes. I watched what had to be a Vision Quest wrestler on a road bike dressed head to toe in sweats… Black sweats at that, and with what seemed to be an

He decided his best chance at passing the 3 women walking down the trail was at the same time a train of 3 riders were coming in the other direction.

My wife and I joined a local health club. It’s a nice full service one that lets you do month-to-month memberships (DO NOT EVER SIGN UP FOR A NON MTM CONTRACT), with a nice daycare facility for my daughter to play in while we exercise. My wife gets on the bike/treadmill and watches the closed circuit camera in the daycare.
I’m still waffling about trying to find a good routine to settle in. Because of weather and work, it has been near impossible to ride every other day, and I haven’t come up with a good workout schedule either. I don’t want to work my legs too much because I want to be able to use them on the trail/road, but I don’t know when the next ride will be. I work out upper body, but without a routine, I’m all over the place.
I think I need to do some reading regarding workouts to come up with something.
