Fitness and coming off the sidelines - Riddle me this

More progress with the wrist/hand on this afternoon's ride - significant in fact, even took the splint off for a good portion of it and was somewhat pleased with how it did. But the progress that afforded more saddle time than I've had in 4 weeks also provided for exposure of additional negative ramifications from this injury debacle. Here's the fitness quiz of the day:

How many minutes does a four week sabatical near the end of the season cost on a North Suncrest climb? And from another angle, by the same measure (time to climb North Suncrest), how many months of fitness gain did the said four week sabatical cost.

And for those of you with some experience with this type of thing - please tell me the fitness comes back faster than the first time it's gained....

are you talking about an african swallow or a european swallow?

Pat - what? Either your in a babbling daze from getting married, or I'm still in daze from the ride this afternoon. Probable that it's the latter...

Jason said...

Dug - affirmative, maybe...
