I have gotten out on the bike a few times:
Lunch with Susan; 15+ mi
|Bleriot and Wicked wait outside while we eat lunch|
|The heart rate was rather more spectacular than usual (red line)|
Can I still climb? Riding the Council Crest/Fairmount Loop, just shy of 15 miles.
|Council Crest Summit, looking east. That's Mt Hood. Better camera on the new phone.|
|I ride the Lemond so infrequently that I have to re-learn how to use the Flight Deck each time.|
I'm also doing some weight and core work. The actual weights are embarrassingly low, but they'll go up. I had given my lighter weights to my mom, years ago. I borrowed them back - still in the original tote bag. Guess they got a lot of use :-) Well, they'll get used here.
A few weeks ago, I realized I felt just fine. Didn't have to ask the sister-in-law to slow down on our neighborhood walks. Nothing hurts. Nothing feels weird, just out of shape.
