Well today I got back on my bike for my first real ride in 5 years. I've done a few rides around the block just to test the LBS tune up and for a little "seat" time. Today I pushed it. Well it seems like i pushed it. 6.6 miles over some slightly hilly terrain. I noticed the my extra 75 pounds made mountains out of molehills but none-the-less, I finished it. Not sure what my time was but I'm estimating 45 minutes which is fine with me since my doc wants 30 mins x 5 days a week to battle the diabetes.
Anyway worked up a good sweat and I'll probably sleep good tonight.
