Bicycling and the Hip

Not that I didn't already know it, but the last two days called out that bicycling indoor on a trainer and bicycling outside in the wind, ice, hills, and drifting dirt, one a machine that requires balance instead of being strapped to a stand, are very different beasts.  I can feel the stressed muscles in my upper legs with only 24 miles of bicycling commuting.  Not just the left hip where the plates are.  There's a little bit of an ache there.  The right one too, and moreso on that side.  I think perhaps because the right leg is now in charge of compensating for what the left leg feels it deserves a pass on.  Maybe I'll end up like Homer when he only lifted a barbell with one arm.
