I have been having a blast after getting my bike fixed. It is not quite right as the 7th gear does not work yet but really – I don’t go that fast. Today’s workout included bag work, ladder climbs and a short bike ride on the street. You see it rained today and I don’t like getting me or my bike wet.
I still have to be careful about injuring my knees but I find if I start slow for the first 20 minutes – soon I can take a harder workout. It sucks getting old but wisdom is highly coveted as one get older. At least I hope I am not one to hit his head against a wall, but rather have the wisdom to walk around the wall.
As far as weight loss – I have lost 10 pounds in the first month – 40 more to go in the next five months before I reach my mini-goal. Who knows – I may find that I am happy with the mini goal and just work on building some muscle at that point. The thing is I don’t want to be skinny – after all in case of a zombie apocalypse – I may need some fat stores.
I met a fellow mountain biker today – Ken. Had a nice chat and found it was fun to have someone to talk to while riding the bike. Ken if you are reading this and want to connect – email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s all for this week. I’m ignoring politics – still wading through all of the propositions this year – trying to keep the man from borrowing money on my behalf!
