First ride today

Hi all...Went for my first ride to day other than a one minute rip across the field and back the day before x mas.. Anyway am I ever in bad shape went for 2 1/2 to 3 hr ride and I was worn out. My Polaris 600rr was running great though.Just had gearing,clutching and suspension work done really happy with the outcome. Should be a great season as long as I get in better shape being retired and getting older doesnt help I guess. Seeing this white stuff on the ground is sure welcomed especially after last years dismal season.
Ride on guys and have a Happy New Year!

I definitely understand the soreness. I took a ride a couple days ago, and I could barely get out of bed yesterday.

I'm right there with you guys. I rode 148 miles Wednesday night and I'm still sore. It was worth every ache and pain though. After 9 months of rebuilding my sled completely, I couldn't be more happy with the end results. Can't wait to log some more miles.

Went for my first ride of the season today too. I'm going to be a hurtin' unit tomorrow. Only went about 40 miles but it was all straight up and straight down and a little sideways action in there too. Oh and I did a *really cool* face smash into my steering column too. Didn't lose any teeth though... One of those flat light conditions and you're out carving through a meadow when you suddenly realize you're air borne.

Good times good times! Can't wait to go again!

i always go for a short ride the 1st time out, sorry oot (i'm Canadian)! It's hard not to want to ride all day, but nobody's body is ready for that...a short ride will get you back in form. Stiff and achy body are not a good reward after riding for a long haul.

My first little screwup of the year was a bit painful. I was carving around a hill and hit something with my left ski. I fell off the ride side of the sled, but my right foot stayed in the foot well. It drug me for awhile, headed for the trees. Luckily I'm enough dead weight that it stopped about a foot from one. That's a first for me, but maybe I need to put a tether on the RMK.

This is serious, folks... RJ speaks the truth. Look it up. Many exercise programs have a "shake" that they want you to buy as part of their program to drink at the ends of workouts. A glass of chocolate milk does the same thing for your body and helps your muscles heal more quickly.

Good point. Stay away from all those Red Bull energy drinks, have a cup of coffee for sure, almost all of us do, but milk has protein and other vitimins..... Also never hurts to drink water or even gatorade to keep hydrated...but stay way from all thos energy drinks that are marketed like crazy...just because Levi and others drink them doesn't mean they're any good for you. Milk or chocolate milk is always a good choice. And 1 coffee is enough to get the cobwebs out in the morning.

AND NEVER RIDE UNDER THE INFLUENCE. ARRIVE ALIVE!

I'm not talking about energy drinks, caffeine drinks, sports drinks, or anything else like that. Chocolate Milk, specifically, has certain vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to help your muscles heal after a workout or similar activity.
