A Dance with Monkeys
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.

Did I mention, my legs felt WEIRD when I got off the thing?!?
Stop sign sprint?
I can see getting so weary that you melt without knowing it. Running is the opposite. Often while running my legs won't go any more even thought I know something is left...
I still have to figure out the gears.
I installed these water bottles on my bike. Now my legs always feel funny after I ride.
Needs more cowbell!
That bike is missing a trail-a-bike for me!

The weird feeling is that you are using different muscles than what you are used to, if you want to get rid of it or actually make it less noticeable is to run right after you get off the bike once/twice a week, yes it's more of a Tri/Du workout than a running one but after a medium ride my legs actually look to go running
I don't recommend doing this after a super long ride unless you are Iroman training
my point is, after I got used to running after biking, my legs no longer think that just a long bike ride is this major thing so the rubber leg isn't as noticeable
Based on the size of the two enormous "water bottles" on my new bike ^^ above^^ I fear I may be to drunk to run after I get off.
I do find the idea of Trent doing a BRICK workout entertaining though...
It's cool that you got into biking, although it sounds like it was really hot for a ride. For me personally, I go more for building a cadence than some intense speed. The cadence is important, especially if you have some hills or a headwind. I do recommend that you check your cranks to make sure they fit the length of your legs; otherwise, you'll be working harder than you need to which can in part be the cause of leg soreness (well, aside from using the muscles : ) ). And when you can, just find an empty bike trail and go for an early morning ride--it's the best!
Does this mean Trent is going to have major calves AND quads?? I think we will need before and after photos.
Live the Adventure. Enjoy the Journey. Be Kind. Have Faith!
