It's been 8 days since I last had ice cream.
So I've finally come to grips with the fact that I am what I am. I currently weight just over 250#. I'm 5'9". Most of the weight is in my midsection, but it has spread to other parts. Years of inactivity have caught up with me. The only bikes I feel fully comfortable riding are my two MTBs. When I ride the road bikes, I feel like I'm on a toothpick. I know the bikes will hold up under me, I just feel uncomfortable riding them.
Anyway, the wife and I have begun working out at the gym, and we've even gone on 2 rides together in the past two days. Neither ride was much of a workout for me, as I'm in better shape than she is, and she had mechanical issues on both rides, but it's a start. I'm able to ride 15-20 miles with no issues. She had difficulty with 4 the other day, but then all she had was the lowest gear on a SRAM S7 internal hub.
Just thought I'd stop by & say hi.
Also, I hate the term Clydesdale, but am willing to live with it.
