My longest ride is about 35 miles when I was smoking.  The biggest difference was I wasnt as physically tired and I didnt need as much recovery time.  I would take it easy for 2 days after doing a ride like that to let my body rest up.  While I didnt go cycling yesterday I did do a fair amount of walking and I felt good.  
 
Treepeo I think with each day we are non smokers more and more we will find ourselves being amazed at what we can do and also having the energy to do it.  I agree that the smoke free life is worth it.  I dont plan on smoking again after all the hard work I have put into this quit.

You biked about 30 miles?  Wow, that's impressive!  Could you have done that if you were still smoking?  I doubt it.  And even if you could, you probably would have been gasping.
 
You know, I walked 3 subway stops after work today, even though it's hard on my feet.  I was proud of myself for doing it.  But what really struck me was that in the past, as a smoker, my heart would have been pounding from the exertion, along with the heat. 
 
Now, I know that I damaged my lungs terribly by all those years of smoking.  And I was further injured in a fire, so my lungs are really in terrible shape.  But man, what a difference it makes to  live smoke free.  I think today it was more the heat and humidity that got to me, as opposed to the physical exertion.  And that is a marvelous thing. 
 
Manderson4, let's keep living this smoke free life, no matter what it takes.  It is so worth it.

Looks like any riding today maybe rained out.  Which is fine by me.  Gives me some time to get a couple of things done around here.  Had a busy day yesterday got about 30 miles in on the bike and finished it off my stop smoking group yesterday, it was a small group but enjoyable.  Oh and I changed my twitter name to SharpieGuy because I am still sucking on sharpies.Have a great smoke free day everyone.
