Picture below from Spy Performance "Joker Ride", the weekend prior to my birthday Christmas with the Eliel Cycling crew. Having dropped my riding volume the last month I thoroughly mashed myself keeping up. Cramping near the end I assumed my blood sugar was high, upon testing at the finish I realized my legs gave out simply from lack of fitness.
Now that vacation is over it's time to up the riding again. Time to get the fitness back in the New Year.
