Spring training

Went for my first road ride today since the crash. Did the full Rosemount loop - 53 miles. Speed wasn't abysmal, but I could feel I have no top end. No sprint, no hill power. It really is like starting from zero, and I'm right where I was in, oh, February or so. Nevertheless, it was good to get out for a ride, no pressure, just enjoying being on the bike again. No racing or group rides for me for a while. The bike looks bling, with pristine white bar tape, Hudz and saddle. The new team kit looks good too.
