Back In The Saddle Again...!

Hey, blame LUCYSUNFLOWER for my groaner blog title...lol!
I FINALLY was able to slow down enough to speed up on my bike today to / from work! And I was pleased with how good my legs felt pedaling. My right knee, shin is still a tad sore, but only when I bend it 90 degrees or more, which I tend not to do when biking due to the degree of my leg extension. Or when I bump it getting in / out of the car...argh!
Got home from work and figured if I'm gonna be cruisin' through the Catskill Mountains this weekend I'd better get the lawn done tonight. Pulled out the ol' hand-powered reel mower, put on my mp3 player and whizzed through 90 minutes of mowing in what felt like 90 degrees, 90% humidity with swarms of little bugs buzzing about my head. What a drippy mess I was when I finished!
But it was DONE!
Now: Let the weekend BEGIN! Look out Bear Spring Mountain, here I come!
Hoping to get out for a little more biking tomorrow to prepare for the BIG ride on Sunday when the weather promises to be a balmy 87 degrees with lots of sunshine! Yee hah! :-)
I'm psyching myself up for whatever comes my way. Lots of walking, maybe even giving up and not completing the whole ride. But I'm planning to give this 64 mile ride my very BEST!
