Off the Bike

I hurt my back last year and it has progressively gotten worse instead of better. I am finally at the point where I can no longer ride my bike or even do simple daily chores. I am going in to see a specialist this Thursday, March 22nd to see what is going on. I hope he will be able to help me because I want my old life back. This stinks!

Good Weekend

I went for a long hard walk yesterday with my daughter and my husband. We did a 3 mile loop with a steep hill (12% grade) included. Today I went for my first bike ride of 2012. It was sunny but very cold. The starting temperature on today's ride was 34 degrees but by the time I finished it was 47 degrees and with the sun shining down it felt a lot warmer. I only rode 16.43 miles but it felt like I rode a century. I guess that's to be expected when one has not been on ones bike since November 6th! :-P But it sure felt good to be outside today in the fresh air and sunshine. I guess it's time to start riding again! Spring is around the corner and some great seasonal rides are coming up in the months ahead! It begins! :)
