Something to think on…

Found a drunk person.

I went for a ride today.  I was a about two blocks house from my house riding right next to a car dealership when I notice a pair of tennis shoes then legs and feet and finally ahead sticking out wedged between a retaining wall and a parked Jeep.  it was easily over a 100 degrees outside.  Honestly I thought this lady was dead.  I rode over to one of the sales persons and told them.  Honestly I didn’t want to start poking her in case she was you know not alive.  Luckily the lady was just passed out and not dead.  She was the strangest thing I have found yet on my bike rides.

Its 7:48 in the MORNING….

I don’t have to go to work until 10 am and i have been sorta awake since about 6.  I have passed my bike Skaro about 5 times this morning I can hear it calling me Mynkist get your lazy behind outside and ride me.  I am taking this starting to ride a bike again very slowly I have a tendency to start riding too fast and burn out.  this time i have a different tactic I am starting super slow. My thought is to slowly build up my endurance so i don’t injury myself and don’t burn out.  i have rode more then twice the amount i did last year up to an amazing 373 miles  that i have logged with my map my ride app .  i want to at least be up to closer to 500 by the end of the year.  I was using my cart to shop which i have stopped.  i need to build back up to the 12 mile round trip ride to get my grocery.  I want to be able to do that at least once a week.  For now its a quick ride around the arroyo and maybe a little bit more.

Starting again..

I am starting riding again today.  I was set back by my back for awhile.  Once i was off my bike i stayed off my bike.  Today I have decided to go for a ride around the arroyo.  Its where i started when i couldn’t ride more then a mile a week.  This is the start of my bike rehab.

Dang it

So I got up early this morning and picked a ton of stickers out of my tires patched it what I could and replaced the tube.  I was putting the tire back on when I felt my old enemy back pain.  My idea of going on a great ride this afternoon was crushed my back is now screaming out in a melody of off keyed music that I don’t want.

Bad news is that my birthday is tomorrow and I hurt!!

First flat in 6 months

I have had my new bike for almost 6 months after the theft of my Giant bike I lovingly referred to as Izzo. I have put a little over 350 miles on it. Which is twice the amount of miles I did last year. Saturday I got my first flat. Right now Skaro is hanging out in my living room waiting for a new tire. I have the tire, I have everything I need except desire. I am my own worse enemy I start doing really well and then quit and then loose everything I gained.
