I realize that I am going at a snail's pace compared to y'all, since starting, my normal speed has been around 6.5 m.p.h....its just my last ride that was at 8 m.p.h. and I think that might be because it was kinda short and in a relatively flat area.
While I notice that I am able to get up more of the hills before I have to walk up to the top, my speed goes from a pretty good clip to straining myself in no time flat. I push myself to keep pedaling until I am actually going slow enough that I have to stop because the bike isn't going forward fast enough to stay upright.
Is it just that I have to build up the muscles in my legs, or endurance, or is it my bike, or...?

Man sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.
