Going to "Go For It" *start the Rocky music*

Each evening I prepare to commute into work something comes up. Got to be home by a certain time to do this, work dinner that, etc. This is all just to get my first major ride in of the year.

So..... on Thursday I have eye surgery (putting lasers in my eyes) at the end of the day. Wife is picking me up to go there. That morning I'm going to do the 20.3 mile commute to my shower place then a 2.6 mile leisurely pedal into work (to avoid sweating).

I plan on laying on the floor of my office and crying around mid-morning.

But it'll be a happy cry, right?

Don't make any sudden movements for a few days. The muscle cramps will be tremendous!
