The last few rides have found myself feeling like I'm about to pass out and shaking like my grandfather used to... all within the first mile or so. After I take a break, let the shakes work themselves out and do some deep breathing, I'm usually good-to-go and feel pretty strong the rest of the ride - usually averaging 10 to 15 miles per ride.
I've been riding - week in, week out - for a little over 20 years (started when I was 15 ). I'm on the verge of 36 and wondering what in the hell is wrong with me. Especially after a stellar riding season where I was able to advance to middle-ring status on a good percentage of the trails I ride here on Colorado's Front Range.
I realize I'm not 25 anymore so I take extra care before the ride to stretch out, warm up and make sure I'm ready to rock.
