I think this too. You have to just keep going, because if you stop....I think it gets harder to get it back, the older you get.

Ive been off my bike for the last 2 weeks with an Achilles tendon injury. (Which was brought about by either a bad pair of flat sneakers or a new bike shoes worn too tight) Have to say, this has been the most debilitating thing Ive ever done to myself, and also the most painful. But it occurred to me...this is all you need do to immobilise yourself. And ten days off the bike (or actually anything at all, couldnt walk), the loss of bike fitness was immediately noticeable, so quickly.

I tips me lid to you fellas with new hips and knees.
