ZzzzZZZzzzzzZZZZzzzzz….

So this morning I woke up late. That shot the idea of me riding from Fullerton to Irvine. So I got my stuff ready, loaded up my car with my Redline 925 and drove to the City of Orange.

As I got on the road pedaling towards my destination. I couldn’t help but notice that I am slower today than I was the day before. It felt like my legs were asleep!

I tried to do some sprints from light to light thinking that it would get my legs to warm up. But it wasn’t until I got about a few miles from my office that I started to feel my legs wake up!

So if you have any suggestions on how I can get my legs to work properly, please PLEASE, leave a comment!

    Men ! i don’t know what to tell you cause it’s the same thing for me… and not only for my legs but for my heart as well.

    I cycle twice a day to the office beacuse i can go back have a luch at home ( i have enought time being only at 10 KM from office ) but when i come back in the afternoon, i can tell you something : my legs as well as my heart are awake as it takes me 2 minutes less to make exaclty the same distance !

    Hope we can find a solution… ! Oh and for me it’s like that EVERY morning.

    Regards !

    Jeff, I figure a little bit of coffee before the ride might do the trick. Perhaps having alchohol the night before doesn’t help either…

    I’ve had similar problems. Get more sleep.

    Here are a few memorable posts where I’m whining about my leggies refusing to submit. A trend I’ve noticed is lack of sleep.
