I had Monday afternoon off from work, and it was finally a nice day, so I wanted to take advantage and get a good ride in - intended to go about 40 miles. I headed out into the wind, taking 77 to Cortland. After a short break, I felt good enough to keep going, so I got on 77 and headed south. As I passed the junction with 41, I thought that it might be fun to go to Adams, so I turned around and headed east on 41 to Adams. I then rode with the wind up 43 towards Bennett, then took the Roca rollers through Roca and back to 77 and then home. Ended up being 55 miles at about a 15.7 mph avg. speed (39.8 max speed down a hill between Adams and Bennett, couldn't push it over 40) - slow average for most I'm sure, but pretty good for me for a solo ride. This was the longest solo ride I've ever done - last year at this time my longest ride ever was 30 miles.
Anyway, I didn't really feel any significant fatigue until I got about halfway through the rollers, and didn't really feel any pain until I got home - when I noticed pain just above and to the inside of my left knee (not the problem I had last summer). It almost feels bruised. I tried ice and ibuprofen - hopefully I'll be ok for Wednesday night's ride.
