Getting back in the saddle
Hello all, first post here. I have been talking about getting back on the bike for some time. I will start tomorrow morning with an easy spin around the neighborhood for about 30 - 45 minutes. I reset my computer and realized I did a paltry 169 miles in 2011! I know that is pathetic, but my work schedule goes something like this....4 nights on, 2 days off, 3 days on, 2 days off, 3 nights on, 2 days off and then 4 days on. This is followed by 5 days off, 4 training days and then six days off. Then the cycle starts again. I think the bulk of my riding will have to come off shift, but I may get some rides in between. I am also a testicular cancer survivor and take testorone supplements since my other testicle shut down, so I have to meter my energies so that I am able to recover properly and still be able to function. I was diagnosed at age 49, way outside the normal age range. Anyway, I am looking forward to spending time on my bike and perusing this forum for inspiration!
