My one week out of town turned into a month-and-a-half. Sorry 'bout that.
Good news, though. I was on a brief vacation when I was invited to attend a conference in Indiana, and the day I got home from that, I was invited to speak at another in Atlanta. All very short notice and with little preparation. But it went well. My body is now repaying me, however, for not having enough excercise.
First, apologies to Tom for not reporting mileage and weight numbers. Miles = 27.3 per week since the last time I sent them in. Weight as of this morning: 228.0 lbs.
Question: I want to start commuting more regularly, and have done so a few times, BUT, while I have been getting more excercise, I haven't really built up any speed, and am kinda worried about getting creamed by cage traffic. I wanna be FRED! The Commuting forum seems to be mostly messengers and hipsters who've been at it for a while; they seem to fail in understanding Clydes.
Thanks, guys. And, I'll be more regular in posting.
