After a couple of short test rides, yesterday was my first real training ride. One loop around my housing area is about 1.55km. I rode for 36mins and covered 10 loops (15.5km) at an average pace of 26km/h. Really need to get some cycling shorts with padding!
After the bike ride I continued with a 5k run. Overall I can feel that my fitness level is really low at the moment, but I think its a matter of time with some consistent training I will be back in decent shape. Thinking of getting a good cycling guide book, just like the handbook I have on running by Bob Glover.
