1st Ride of the Season...woo hoo!

Sunday, March 15, 2009

What a GLORIOUS day for my first bike ride of the season! Mid-50's, not a cloud to be found...I felt so strong...! There is some *potent* magic stirring when I'm on my bicycle! Biked up around our local Chenango Valley State park 'round highway 79 and 369...I noticed I could bike up hills without shifting into lower gears as I've had to in the past. My legs are feeling so powerful!

I can tell this season I'm going to be traveling far and wide on my two-wheeled buddy!

Oh...sported my bright blue SparkPeople t-shirt on this ride too! :-)

    emoticonIt is amazing how our bodies will get stronger the more we push ourselves.

    Don.... It is so nice that you have such nice weather to go bike riding.

They are saying another 5-8" tonight and 5-12" tomorrow.

Enjoy your nice weather I really mean it.

    I was wondering if you got out. I did scholarship interviews all day. Kept saying to the director "lets do these outside". I think she thought I was kidding.

Glad you got out there.

Doing Better...

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Instead of oversleeping an hour and a half I only overslept 45 mins.!

DOH!

But I *refuse* to use an alarm clock...going to keep working at re-setting my own internal alarm.

I still struggle so to get to bed early...it seems 10:30 - 11 is the norm...and then there's the occasional midnight! If I want to get up @ 6, my body keeps rebelling, saying "MORE SLEEP! YOU NEED MORE SLEEP!"

    You DO need more sleep! Do your best to get those zzzzs, you know that proper rest is a major requirement for a healthy mind AND body! Still, I know what you mean about trying to get to bed at Xhour and then before one knows it - it's 11PM!

Just When My Sleep Was Getting SO Steady...

Monday, March 09, 2009

...comes Daylight Savings Time...oof! Overslept an hour and a half this morning, blew my treadmill session out of the water!

Energy was low all day, but still got home and did my 'millwork tonight. It didn't rev me up, the music made it tolerable, but certainly not easy or rejuvenating...!

Turning in early tonight to get my "clock" straightened around!

Still no word from my surgeon on surgery date yet...

Biking Continues To Be De-Railed...

Sunday, March 08, 2009

Went to the park with the best of intentions once AGAIN today...but this time I noticed that during it's winter storage *somehow* (grrr!) the chain had come off and gotten tangled up and I was unable to get it going.

I was so steamed up I just stormed off and walked it off...probably made my best walking time yet...! lol

Off to the bicycle shop I go...

Don

ps, note to myself...I *REALLY* oughta be handier mechanically if I'm going to be riding this thing...!
