My second first day back at CYCLEBAR Columbia Pike was great!
I really enjoyed my second first ride. While yesterday was my first first ride back, I didn't reach any flow. It was just a shakedown. Yesterday's was more fun. I felt back at home. And, I stayed within my Maffetone range of 105-115bpm 90% of the time.

The results of three days of inactive recovery and some motivational words from my best friend
I canceled my Friday ride last week and took the weekend off. No spinning or CYCLEBAR for me until last night. And, despite what everyone said, I didn't do any amount of active recovery (though I do consider that to be a mistake I don't regret but will try to learn from).

Trying Riding Everyday at CYCLEBAR
After an awesome ride at CYCLEBAR Columbia Pike over the weekend, the co-owner, John Ryan, mentioned that some riders at the studio ride three sequential rides—three rides in a row—and I thought, "maybe I can ride every day."
